The B1 was the preferred Bb trumpet of Renold Schilke and the basis in design for the other B series instruments. Distinguished by its free and open feel, this trumpet is among our most popular models, allowing the player the diversity in sound color from a rich, full bodied dark sound to a brilliant ringing tone when desired.
This horn is on consignment for a friend of the shop. It plays great with a big, rich, core sound. The gold plating on the horn has faded a tiny amount but overall is in fine shape. Check out inside the bell especially. Be advised that this horn does have one of the earlier Yamalloy Casings (a project worked on in collaboration with Yamaha and Schilke) No dents and only a couple of tiny dings on this one. Save a ridiculous amount off of a new horn today with this deal! Seller is motivated hence the fabulous price. Sold with no case or mouthpiece.
Be sure to read this about the "Yamalloy" valves. again we find these valves on this horn to be just fine and have very good compression!
