This instrument sets the worldwide standard for pro piccolo trumpets!

Incredible intonation and easy playability have made the P5-4 piccolo trumpet from Schilke an impeccable professional horn that sets the standard in the industry.  The BG (Butler/Geyer) variation of the horn adds a first valve saddle and third valve ring to the instrument, specifications designed at the behest of acclaimed trumpet professors Barbara Butler and Charles Geyer, currently faculty members at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.

This horn is silver plated and keyed to Bb and A and includes one mouthpiece with a cornet receiver.  It's specifications also feature a Medium Bore (.450"/11.42mm), S bell (4"/101.60mm) with a Schilke #8 Taper.

Industry standard and all around amazing piccolo trumpet!


I played this piccolo trumpet in a brass choir for a number of years and I always loved the way it sounded and more importantly, felt. Most piccolos feel stuffy and have a lot of resistance. I felt a comfortable level of resistance with this horn. I never struggled with intonation. The sound has a lot of color- bright when I need it but can darken up with the right mouthpiece. Only complaint is the cornet shank receiver, but you get used to it. Very easy to play and well worth owning!
