One of Schilke's most popular Medium bore models is the B6Lb.  Bell Model numbers which include an "L" (as in "B6L") signifies trumpets that are built with tuning bells. These are "Step bore" designs where the bore of the horn expands through the lead-pipe, tuning slide and tuning slide bow, and valve slide bows, opening up the horn and making it freer blowing. Although unadvertised, the B6L has a standard weight pure copper bell (not the lightweight beryllium bell) the B7Lb.  B6L Trumpets are among the more popular Schilke models and the very popular. The Yamaha YTR-6310Z is based upon this design, although the Schilke models are slightly larger in bore size than the Yamaha. They are easy playing and do not take a lot of air to fill up.
