Schilke Cornets

schilkeXA1.jpg Schilke XA1 and XA7 Bb Cornet
English Short Model with Shepherds Crook Bore: ML -.460" (11.68 mm) Bell: L – 5.00" (127.00 mm) Copper Brass Bell with #1 taper. In the tradition of the British Brass Band, the XA1 has a vintage cornet design with a tighter wrap that permits the player a dark, rich and round sound. The XA1 provides a wonderful response at lower dynamic levels with a smooth even quality in color and intonation in all registers. Additionally, the player will find articulation clarity from high to low and good projection at the highest volume. The XA7 offers the same bell as the XA1 but built with a medium bore. This allows the instrument to blow with slightly more resistance than the XA1.

Long Model with Shepherds Crook Bore: ML -.460" (11.68 mm) Bell: L – 5.00" (127.00 mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #1 taper. The A1 long model Bb cornet is an ideal match for the player looking for a conical sound quality but needs additional focus and projection at louder dynamic levels. While maintaining a solid center to the sound, the A1 allows the player warmth for Dixieland, small combo jazz or large ensemble performance where the projection of a trumpet is required yet a rounder cornet sound is desired. The A2 model is also a medium large with the tighter #2 taper with compact bell. This provides a more compact, direct feel with slightly more resistance.
SchilkeA2C.jpg Schilke A2C C Cornet
Bore: ML -.460" (11.68 mm) Bell: ML – 5.00" (127.00 mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #2 taper The A2C is considered by many to be the finest cornet in the key of “C” built in the world. The quick response inherent in the Schilke instrument design affords the player the flexibility and diversity required when performing the cornet or solo parts in orchestral or chamber literature.
SchilkeEbsoprano.jpg Schilke Eb Soprano Cornet
Bore: M -.450" (11.42 mm) Bell: M - 4.50" (114.30 mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #4 taper. Our Eb cornet is the “reference standard” for soprano cornets in the Brass band tradition due to its uniformity in intonation, and sound color. The Schilke Eb cornet allows the player a greater sense of security and ease with superior projection when performing the virtuosic demands of the soprano cornet chair in the Brass band.
