Up for sale is my 2 yr old Schilke Handcraft HC1 lacquer Bb trumpet. It is the best trumpet I have owned this far! Beautiful sound, flexibility and facility. The intonation is spot-on, and it maintains a nice tone even though I have moved to more shallow mouthpiece setups. The links above are video of me playing the horn on the day that I listed it. I am very hesitant to sell it and I'm only doing so because I finally found something I like better. I don't want to keep 3 top tier trumpets and really can't afford to. I purchased this trumpet just over 18 months ago at $3,100.Since this is Schilke's first entry into making lacquer horns the lacquer seemed to fail faster than I'm accustomed to. The horn still makes a good presentation from a distance but you can see the lacquer wear in the photos. I've never had any repairs done to it and there are no dents except for the ding that I've shown in the photos on the 3rd valve slide. As you can see from the videos or should I say hear from the videos it plays great! Offered without case or mouthpiece, however I can include a serviceable used Eastman contoured fiberglass case if needed at no additional cost. I'll add pics of that case tonight. Thank you for checking this listing This is definitely a player's horn!
