What’s on My Bench? A 1976 Schilke B3!

#amandasbench brassandwinds quinntheeskimo repair schilke trumpet vintage

Welcome back to my home bench, where I had the pleasure of working on this little beauty! This horn came to us with some bell damage, but other than that all it needed was a clean and polish. The bell is nice and straight now, and though it does show signs of repair, it’s in excellent playing condition! Compression is good with Berp #2 oil, and it really is a fantastic player. Though it is a large bore and a free-blowing horn, thanks to Schilke’s step bore it doesn’t feel like a typical large bore horn. With a heavy all around mouthpiece it’s got a big, centered sound but is still quite agile for classical playing. With a smaller lead mouthpiece, it’s a beast that the rips through commercial lead playing with ease! It’s a great all-around horn that it’s lucky new owner will have a lot of fun with. Check our listings soon to make it your own!

Wishing you fast attacks and clean passages!
