The largest, free blowing Schilke C trumpet available.

The CX5 Traditional Custom Series trumpet is one of the largest, free blowing Schilke C trumpets available. The extra-large straight bore and medium throat bell makes this trumpet extremely open, with a large sound and excellent projection, but with slightly more control than the CX4.

The CX5 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.
  • Key: C
  • Bore: .468-inch (11.88mm)
  • Leadpipe: Reverse taper
  • Leadpipe Material: Yellow brass
  • Bell: 5-inch (127mm) medium throat with #3 taper in fixed or tunable design
  • Bell Material: Yellow brass
  • Valves: Monel
  • 1st Valve Slide Adjustment: Thumb saddle
  • 3rd Valve Slide Adjustment: Fixed ring
  • Case: Custom double hard case
  • Mouthpiece: Schilke Standard Series
  • Finish: Silver plate


  • Available versions: CX5, CX5L
  • CX5 – Yellow brass fixed bell. A large throat #3 bell with a taper graduated for even and full-bodied tone.
  • CX5L – 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.
  • Extra-large bore
  • Medium throat bell
