Custom Series Trumpets
Lightweight “Step-Bore” designs from Renold O. Schilke
The Schilke Custom Series C Trumpets (also known as the C Series) were designed by Renold O. Schilke and date back to his founding of our company. These models feature a lightweight design with minimal bracing, round main tuning slide and reverse leadpipe. Unique to the C (and B Series Bb) the Custom Series C Trumpets are designed with a multi-bore concept to create a balanced feel with each model. They are known for a natural brilliance, or “shimmer,” to the sound, an ease of playing, consistent “feel” from top to bottom and superior intonation.
The Custom Series C Trumpets offers a choice of bell taper and bore size. Every musician can find the right “feel” for them given the choice in these uniquely designed models. Most Custom Series C Trumpets have a similar equivalent to a Custom Series Bb Trumpet.
