Schilke Custom Handcraft HC1 Bb Trumpet special clearance

Phil Parker Insight

Inspired by the classic American jazz sound and original design concepts of Renold O. Schilke, the new 'Handcraft HC' Bb offers a completely new and unique playing experience from the Schilke Company in 2013! The 'Handcraft' HC features a new bell taper and redesigned valve section along with the multi-bore concepts that firmly established our 'B' series Bb models. Easy to play, this instrument has a very even and balanced feel in resistance while providing great flexibility to manipulate sound colour. Very responsive with superb intonation long associated with Schilke designs, the fit and precision of the HC Bb continues the high standard for build quality, playability and design known around the world!

Model Handcraft Bb Trumpet Bore: XL .468" (11.88mm) Bell: XL #0 Taper Handcraft Bell in Yellow Brass

Including case, mouthpiece and accessory kit

The Handcraft models cater to the fan of the sound of Vintage trumpets with the beauty of modern build quality. The two models vary only in bell material. The HC1 has a yellow brass bell, whilst the HC2 has a solid copper bell. The bells are made on an entirely new #0 mandrel and they are very large in the taper. Married to an XL bore valve block they produce a dark velvety tone reminiscent of smoky jazz clubs of yesteryear.
