A dark rich playing trumpet for the performer who requires a vibrant noticeable sound!

Bore: L -.463" (11.75 mm)

Bell: L – 5" (127.00 mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #1 taper

Acclaimed for it's 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 dynmaic levels. This characteristic design is streamlined, clean, and elegant; and the X Series provides a balanced, comfortable playing experience with a surperior tone.

This large bore model plays big and broad. The X3 allows the player to achieve a dark, rich sound with maximum projection and a balance that allows an “even feel” throughout the range of the instrument. The seamless bell is made up of extremely lightweight copper, allowing more direct and compact projection.

*Case and Mouthpiece Not Included*

Comments about Schilke X3- X Series Professional Bb Trumpet (Silver Plate):

Unless I need picc or flugel, this is the only horn I need for everything from pop gigs to quintet to parades to, well, everything. As an Army musician I need to be ready for anything and this horn is. The horn is very well made,slots beautifully, and allows me total control in any register at. Any dynamic level. Playing Sousa marches ppp during a ceremony is not easy but this horn makes it possible. It also makes it possible to cover the whole band with a soloeven in a cavernous bar and with a dead microphone. Love this horn.
