Schilke Music and Greenhoe Trombones

Preserving the Legacy and Quality of Handcrafted Trombones

Schilke Music is proud to continue the legacy of Greenhoe Trombones, founded in 2001 under the direction and design of Gary Greenhoe. Gary has been an instrumental part of high-quality trombone design for most of his 41 years as a professional trombonist with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Gary’s patented Greenhoe valve system has been at the center of every Greenhoe Trombone since the very beginning. Greenhoe Trombones represent a return to a classic sound with the highest quality available throughout the world and we couldn’t be more proud to steward this incredible brand.

Beautiful Trombones Without Compromise

Schilke Music Products is committed to preserving the designs and legacy that Gary created and developed throughout his career. We use state-of-the-art technology combined with traditional old world craftsmanship and expert assembly to carry on the original Greenhoe designs. Schilke’s unparalleled quality of construction ensures the highest standards in modern trombone sound and performance without compromise. With the integration of Greenhoe, Inc. into Schilke Music Products, the leader in high quality brass manufacturing for more than 65 years, Greenhoe Trombones will continue to represent the highest standard of excellence.
