Schilke C Trumpets:

The Schilke trumpet models in the key of ‘C’ share the same playing characteristics and distinctive design elements that have distinguished the brand among playing professionals for more than a half century. An immediacy in attack clarity, even scale, and brilliance help define the Soloiste, HD and C series models.

Soloiste Series C Trumpets

A design collaboration along with Schilke international artist Marc Geujon, these new orchestral series C trumpets are truly a first at Schilke Music. Like their Bb counterparts, almost every aspect of these trumpets have been created over the past year and a half. At the heart of the series, an all new valve casing was designed for a resonant, clear sound throughout its register. The SC4 leadpipe and bell have also been handcrafted to Marc’s exact specifications. An exquisite bell engraving is included with every Soloiste instrument.

Building upon the success of the first Soloiste Series models, the SC4-OT offers new options for bell, main tuning slide and bracing design. These new design elements combine to provide a unique experience for the orchestral trumpet player.

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.
