About the Schilke B1 Bb Trumpet
Acclaimed for their exceptional intonation, ease in response, and outstanding projection, the Renold O. Schilke designed series of Bb trumpets have set the standard for playability and build quality since their introduction in 1956.
The classic reverse main tuning slide with full radius bend, mouthpipe design and bore variation help create a responsive, open feel with an overall evenness throughout the range of the instrument at all dynamic levels.
This characteristic design is streamlined, clean and elegant. The B models provide a balanced and comfortable playing experience with a superior tone quality.
The Schilke B1 was the preferred Bb trumpet of Renold Schilke and the basis in design for the other B series instruments. Distinguished by its free and open feel, this trumpet is among Schilke's most popular models, allowing the player diversity in sound colors from a rich, full bodied dark sound to a brilliant ringing tone when desired.
