Just wondering if anyone on TH has any experience with these

I bought one at a pretty good price on fleaBay on a whim. I'm playing a Curry 3C as my main, or rather, my only piece right now.

Well then, let me be the first.

So the piece arrived today, and it out 3C's my 3C. I mean, it's got a more rich, dark tone to it and it's very comfortable. Quite apart from what others usually call me, I'm gonna call myself a Schilke convert.

Is it deeper than a Curry 3C? How about sound wise?

I tried a Schilke 13C4 a while back but the V shape really threw me off.

It appears to be approx the same depth as my own Curry 3C, which I've been using for the past few months. The Curry is a great piece and suits me fine, but the Schilke offers - for me - more comfort, and a somewhat more rich tone. By rich I mean more depth, less bright. That's as good a description of the tone as I can do.

Re size specs - 16.8 mm cup, 27mm throat. Semi flat rim, which is probably why it feels nice on my lips.

It doesn't appear to be V cut to my eyes. Hopefully I've helped.

Cool, I'll have to try one sometime.

The usefulness of a mouthpiece is judged in weeks, more probably months, one day says nothing.

I didn't know this was a thing. (I operated the mouthpiece lathe in the dark ages of the early '70's) Sounds like it might be in the same ballpark as the Yamaha Hagstrom.

13D4 16.89 .665 27 New ā€“ Best option for a player looking for a thick, rich, weighted sound. Medium large ā€˜Dā€™ cup offers a tone that is colorful with depth. #4 semi-flat rim affords comfort with sharper bite for superior articulation clarity. Diameter ideal for all players from student to professional.

By "in the same ballpark" do you just mean the diameter? Because something similar to the Yamaha Hagstrom with a comfortable rim sounds very interesting.

Can anyone attest to how deep the cup is exactly? Like Bach 3C deep, Bach 1.25C deep, or Bach 5B deep?

The Yamaha Hagstrom is smaller in diameter than a Bach 7C. It has a rather deep cup though. The Schilke sounds like it is a much larger diameter than the Hagstrom.

I was guessing. A Bach 5B might be a closer comparison. Gerard Schwartz played one of those back in the day as 1st trumpet NYP. I heard him give a scary good recital at the Trumpet Symposium in Denver, 1972.

Yeah maybe that's true, but first impressions tell me the Schilke piece is damn fine. And now that I've had for longer than a day, it yet remains the damn fine piece.

Yea, sometimes that happens, it's great from the getgo and your first impression is right. That's how it was for me when I got my first Stork, the Vacchiano 4C26B.
