Tunable Beryllium Copper Bell!
The Schilke C1B Custom Series C Trumpet with Tunable Beryllium Bell is an ideal instrument for a player looking for slightly more resistance. The C1B Series features a .460-inch bore and a 5-inch tunable Beryllium bell with large throat #1 taper. The more resistant design of the C1B offers excellent security for the player when performing solo literature, chamber music and lighter playing. The Schilke C1B Custom Series C Trumpet with Tunable Beryllium Bell is available in silver finish. Case and mouthpiece NOT included.
The Tunable Beryllium Bell Series offers a beryllium copper bell that projects very well with more of the higher overtones present. The response of this material is also faster at all dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo. The advantage of the tuning bell feature is that the tuning slide can be left all the way in or moved only a little, thereby, keeping the bore relatively free of gaps that may cause a disturbance in the nodel pattern of the sound.
