Custom Series Trumpets
Lightweight “Step-Bore” designs from Renold O. Schilke
The Schilke Custom Series C Trumpets (also known as the C Series) were designed by Renold O. Schilke and date back to his founding of our company. These models feature a lightweight design with minimal bracing, round main tuning slide and reverse leadpipe. Unique to the C (and B Series Bb) the Custom Series C Trumpets are designed with a multi-bore concept to create a balanced feel with each model. They are known for a natural brilliance, or “shimmer,” to the sound, an ease of playing, consistent “feel” from top to bottom and superior intonation.
Bore Size: .460″ ML
Tuning Slide Bore: .468”
Bell Taper: #1
Bell Material: Tunable Yellow Brass
All Custom Series C Trumpets come standard with a yellow brass bell. Yellow brass bells are more consistent in tonal color regardless of dynamics.
Detachable tuning bells are available by special order on any Custom Series C Trumpet. The advantage of the tuning bell feature is that the tuning slide can be left all the way in or moved only a little, thereby keeping the bore relatively free of gaps that may cause a disturbance in the nodal pattern of the sound wave. Another advantage is that different bells of varying tapers, materials and finishes may be used to change characteristics of the instrument.
