A perfect choice for the performer that desires more resistance.

The B2 Traditional Custom Series trumpet is a medium large bore instrument that is the perfect choice for the performer that desires more resistance than the B1. Featuring a medium-large bore and medium throat bell with a #3 taper which is faster to the valve section. The bore and bell combination still plays broad and bright, yet with more control than the model B5. The B2 trumpet is available in four variations—a fixed yellow brass bell, a fixed beryllium copper bell, a tunable yellow brass bell, and a tunable beryllium copper bell—each designed to customize the instrument performance to the player. Each Schilke Trumpet is made by hand. Choose yours today.

Features

  • Available versions: B2, B2B, B2L, B2LB 
  • B2 – Yellow brass fixed bell. A medium throat #3 bell with a taper
  • B2B – Beryllium copper fixed bell. Large throat #3 bell made from an extremely lightweight copper, this bell offers a more direct, compact projection.
  • B2L – Tunable yellow brass bell. The detachable bell design allows tuning from the bell, to offer a more open, free feeling in the upper register. With less bracing, the response feels quicker by allowing the bell to resonate more to improve projection.
  • B2LB – Tunable beryllium copper bell. The combination of direct projection and quicker response, this version is the most free-blowing and resonant available.
  • Medium-large bore
  • Medium throat bell
