About the Schilke S42 Trumpet
Retaining the same response and excellent intonation that is characteristic of the B and X series models, the S series Schilke trumpets play with a compact, focused, and resonant center to the sound. Distinguished by the bell construction, bracing, and different mouth pipe and tuning slide design, the S series instruments emphasize the sound core and are ideal for both classical and commercial performance.
All S series Schilke trumpet models share the same bell, which is referred to as a ML bell or a #2 bell. This bell has the same taper as the bell of the B5, but is made with yellow brass and a soldered bell bead. This feature helps with the sound focus and emphasizes the resonant core of the sound at the louder dynamic levels. The S series Main Tuning Slide has a semi-square shaped bow with a brace providing additional resistance and sound focus rather than the rounded “brace-less” slide on the B and X series models.
