HD Series:

Designed in 2006, the HD C trumpet models offer a dark core of sound with excellent intonation and projection. The S22CHD is very free blowing with a powerful center. The newest model C3HD was developed to create the same HD characteristics but offering a quicker response and brilliance to its core sound. Originally designed for Marc Geujon, Solo Chair of the Paris Opera.

C Series Trumpet

Traditional C Series Designs by Renold Schilke:

C1 – ML Bore – (.460”/11.68mm) / L Bell – (5”/127.00mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #1 Taper

An all-purpose option, which provides an open, free blowing feel that certain players require at louder dynamic levels and the immediate brilliance needed for projection in a large ensemble.

C3 – L Bore – (.463”/11.75mm) / M Bell – (5”/127.00mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #3 Taper

This is an ideal instrument for a player looking for slightly more resistance than the standard large bore models for security when performing solo literature, chamber music and lighter playing.

C5 – L Bore – (.463”/11.75mm) / M Bell – (5”/127.00mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #3 Taper

Similar in feel to the C3, the C5 is slightly tighter in the main tuning slide providing additional resistance.

CX – L Bore – (.463”/11.75mm) / L Bell – (5”/127.00mm) Yellow Brass Bell with #1 Taper

The largest playing C trumpet currently in production by the Schilke Company allowing for a variety of tonal color ranging from a round, rich, full-bodied sound to tone with brilliance when required.

Available Finishes:

  • Silver Plate
