Classic B series with a copper bell.
The Schilke B5 model has slightly more resistance than the classic B1 Schilke, with a more compact sound. This model provides flexibility in sound color with continuity in timbre in all registers and outstanding projection. It features a medium large bore (.460") and a medium large copper bell (5") (127.00 mm) with #2 taper.
The Schilke B Series Custom Silver Bb Trumpets are some of the most responsive and rich sounding instruments available. The B Series trumpets are available in a variety of bell and bore combinations and feature tight valve tolerances for superior performance to meet the needs of the professional player.
With a Schilke instrument one achieves the highest degree of intonation that is technically possible. Schilke's market is worldwide with the popularity of Schilke B flat and C trumpets reputedly being greater outside of the United States than in it, according to former employees. The small trumpets are the world's standards and Schilke's reputation was built in the United States on their domination of this market.
Custom-built is not merely a name. Schilke instruments are made to order, adapted to the individual by craftsmen dedicated to produce the finest instrument.
