Enjoy the Balanced, Comfortable Playing Experience & Superior Tone Quality of a Schilke B6L 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 Schilke trumpet at all dynamic levels. This characteristic design is streamlined, clean, and elegant. 

The Schilke B trumpet model provides a balanced, comfortable playing experience with a superior tone quality

The classic medium bore trumpet, the B6 has been an extremely popular choice for the commercial player. In the studio or on stage, for lead or in the section, this Schilke trumpet model has a compact sound with superior projection and exceptional brilliance. 

The detachable tuning bell design is available on all Schilke Bb, C, Eb/D, and G/F custom-built trumpets. By tuning from the bell, the instrument has an improved feel and superior intonation. In general, a tuning bell instrument has a more open or free feeling response, mainly in the upper register. The removal of the standard S brace on the front section of the bell allows the instrument to resonate or ring with greater projection. Because the tuning bell design has less bell bracing, the general response of the instrument feels quicker.

With the lack of fixed bracing, the tuning bell design is fragile and caution should be used when carrying a tuning bell trumpet in a soft sided case such as a gig bag.
