B&S Bb Trumpets

It is now six years since the first Challenger trumpets were produced at Vogtländische Musikinstrumentenfabrik. That is a very short time in comparison with the long centuries of instrument-making tradition of the Vogtland region of Saxony. The exceptional achievement of producing a complete range of instruments within just five years, which finds the enthusiastic approval of musicians across the world, is still unparalleled. 

The Challenger series has been renamed.  The Challenger I is now "Standard Professional" and the Challenger II is now "Custom Professional".\
