OVERVIEW

Short bell model!

The Schilke P7-4 Custom Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet offers the player an instrument that is well suited for symphonic and solo performance. The P7-4 features a .450-inch bore with a #8 taper copper bell with a full 180 degree radius bell bow for a broad sound that is free blowing plus a quick response with superior intonation. The P7 also features a 1st valve thumb saddle and a third valve slide ring for easy intonation adjustment. The Schilke P7-4 Custom Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet is available in silver finish. Case and mouthpiece NOT included.

Blending exceptionally well with larger keyed trumpets, the P7-4 features a full 180 degree radius bell bow and is configured with a first valve saddle, third valve slide ring and two mouthpipes in Bb and A. Providing an alternative to the classic P5-4 model, the P7-4 offers the characteristic quick response and superior intonation long associated with Schilke designs. This three-valve instrument is an ideal choice for a performer looking for a freer, broader blowing piccolo trumpet while playing the demanding upper register and fortissimo parts in the symphonic and baroque repertoire where a fourth valve is not necessary.

Comments about Schilke P7-4 Custom Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet:

I have owned a few piccolo trumpets over the years... Selmer, Courtois and a Schilke P5-4. Several months ago, my Schilke of 17 years went missing. I had customized it as much as possible trying to get the sound bigger --- Curry bottom valve caps, custom leadpipe, heavier valve stems and a custom mouthpiece. The horn sounded better, but it still lacked that warmness of some piccolo trumpets. Upcoming jobs left no time to spare and I went shopping for a new horn. After consulting with other players whose opinion I respect, I made the decision to try the P7-4. I received three from WWBW to try and played them that evening. Each of them was freer blowing than the P5-4. Since my previous horn's leadpipe had a trumpet mouthpiece receiver, I had been wary of changing to a cornet mouthpiece and an increase of resistance. There was no problem at all. I went the next day to play the all three in a cathedral and was astounded at the difference between the two models. This instrument took all I could give and never broke up or lost its focus. Wow. It didn't take long to make my final decision. This pic is darker with a richer sound than my previous Schilke. This new setup (mostly) gets rid of the nasal brightness, an unfortunate characteristic of the P5-4. While it is a phenomenal solo instrument, it is very appropriate for use in a large instrumental ensemble or with a chorus. Intonation is great, but the ability to fine-tune notes with the first and third slides is a very welcome addition. I am thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend this instrument.
