The Schilke S Series Custom Bb Trumpets offer a compact, focused, resonate center to the sound. The S Series features a special #2 ML bell made from yellow brass with a soldered bell bead that helps focus the sound, especially at louder dynamic levels. The Schilke S Series is well suited for use in both a classical or commercial performance. The Schilke S Series Custom Bb Trumpets are available in models S22, S32 and S42.
Distinguished by the bell construction, bracing, and different mouth pipe and tuning slide design, the œS series instruments emphasize the sound core and are ideal for both classical and commercial performance. All œS series trumpet models share the same bell, which is referred to as a ML bell or a #2 bell. The bell has the same taper as the bell used on the B5 but utilize a yellow brass bell with 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 œS series Main Tuning Slide has a semi-square shaped bow with a brace providing additional resistance and sound focus rather than the rounded œbrace-less slide on the œB and œX series models.

Comments about Schilke S Series Custom Bb Trumpet:
I'd been wanting a Schilke Large bore Bb trumpet for years but just couldn't justify spending almost $3000. Well I was on the WWBW website and saw that there was a used one in #2 condition for $1600 less. I purchased it and boy am I glad I did. WWBW has the best service I've received in a long time. The Schilke S22 is a remarkable instrument! Very well crafted, great sound and it slots very well. This is it! I've played the Yamaha XENO series, Kanstuhl, Bach Stradivarius, a few different Benge models, Holton, and and and, but this horn really has a good balance! This is my number one horn now. Great for section and lead. Thanks Schilke and Thanks WWBW
