It's NOT too light

Comments about Schilke E3L Custom Series Eb / D Trumpet with Tuning Bell:

I've heard that the E3L was "light" in comparison to Shires, Bachs, and B&S. I've not found that to be the case. It can be heard well over a large orchestra on Verdi's Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves or Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance, (I don't have an F trumpet, but this makes an easy transposition). For bands it's great on the trumpet (vs cornet) parts or descant parts. I detach the bell from the mount on the valve casings using only the screw at the pipe. For church work, I use it for 1st Bb trumpet parts - it really facilitates the part.

      Comments about Schilke E3L Custom Series Eb / D Trumpet with Tuning Bell:

      I'm going to qualify this review up front, in as much as I regularly used the E4L/D variant of this instrument for over ten years while working as a principal White House musician with the Marine Band. The instrument was used for orchestra performances, brass quintet work, and solo performances. Excellent playing characteristics and intonation. The fourth valve on the E4L/D allowed for its use in the Hummel and other works which required the lower fundamental that is not available (at least not properly dealt with) on any three valve D/E flat. Be aware, the E3L does not have the 4th valve.
