Free Blowing Design!
The Schilke X Custom Series Bb Trumpet offers a more free-blowing instrument in comparison to the S or B Series instruments. The X Series features a large #1 taper bell for outstanding projection plus a responsive design. The Schilke X Custom Series Bb Trumpets are available in silver finish with a choice of a large or extra large bore configuration in the X3L or X4L design. Case and mouthpiece NOT included.
Acclaimed for its exceptional intonation, ease in response and outstanding projection, the Schilke Bb trumpet has set the standard for playability and build quality since it was introduced in 1956. The reverse main tuning slide with full radius bend, leadpipe design and bore variation help create a responsive open feel with an overall evenness throughout the range of the instrument at all dynamic levels. This characteristic design is streamlined, clean and elegant. The œB and œX models provide a balanced, comfortable playing experience with a superior tone quality.

Comments about Schilke X Series Custom Bb Trumpet:
Schilke, (Besides being known for their supreme intonation), makes wonderful valves, and what makes this stand out is that unlike the Bach Stradivarius series (Large Bells), the valves do not "bounce" when pushed quickly. This trumpet is designed for the professional trumpet player, if you do not have ample skill with blowing large volumes of air, ths horn will destroy that player. If played properly (very unforgiving horn) then this maybe one of the best horns you will ever use. Alot of Bach players switch over to schilke almost completely after playing their horns.
