A free-blowing large bore instrument.

The CX Traditional Classic Series trumpet is designed for the player looking for a free-blowing large bore instrument. The combination of the large throat bell, along with the reverse leadpipe design and straight bore design, keeping the bore .463-inches continuously throughout the trumpet, makes this instrument perfect for the player looking for an instrument with the sound and projection of the Schilke C trumpets, but with less resistance. The CX trumpet is available in two variations—a fixed yellow brass bell, or a tunable yellow brass bell—each designed to customize the instrument performance to the player. Each Schilke Trumpet is made by hand. Choose yours today.

Features

  • Available versions: CX, CXL
  • CX – Yellow brass fixed bell. A large throat #1 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • CXL – 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.
