Great news for wind / brass players: We are happy to now be able to offer you instruments from the high-class manufacturer Schagerl! Instruments from this Austrian brand have long since established a great reputation among the highest class of musicians.
Traditional company with impressive growth
More than half a century ago, the Schagerl company started as a small music shop with a repair workshop. About 25 years later, the company started to manufacture its own wind instruments. In the meantime, the quality specialists have developed into one of the world’s best-known instrument manufacturers. The company currently employs about 40 people in the tranquil Hörsdorf district of Melk in Lower Austria and is still owner-managed in its second generation. A real family business.
Master class: Optimal sound, playability & workmanship
Schagerl’s master instruments deliver a warm, and at the same time bright, sound rich in overtones, delivering a perfect balance in all registers. They are easy to play and are characterized by precise intonation and high-quality workmanship. The instruments of the Master Series are completely handcrafted and have a big community of admirers round the world.
Intermediate instruments for beginners & advanced users
With the Schagerl Academica, Schagerl offers an inexpensive instrument line for beginners and advanced users. The range includes instruments for every level. Wind instruments for absolute beginners as well as those that can accompany musicians for many years.
None other than the artists, the godparents, of the Master Series have the instruments of the Signature Series. The result: best intonation, easy response and brilliant sound, players can look forward to instruments with the concepts and details that the greats demand.
The intermediates are completed by the Intercontinental Series, which reflects the facets of the international brass world. In cooperation with renowned musicians worldwide, these instruments were made to imitate the specific sound of a country or a city. Now the world is at your fingertips.
Comprehensive range for all requirements
The Schagerl range covers the entire spectrum of rotary valve and Perinet valve trumpets as well as flugelhorns and trombones. Not to mention that Schagerl also produces woodwinds such as saxophones and transverse flutes, which do not have to shy away from international comparison in the least. So everything from the piccolo trumpet to the trombone to the “Wunderhorn“.
By the way: Schagerl has also developed an innovation in the mouthpiece field: The new mouthpiece is called “Apredato” and reflects the wish of many trumpeters to darken the sound of their instrument without having to give up their usual mouthpiece. Surprisingly, the solution here is… water! The mouthpieces are encased; the casing is filled with water. Impressive concept! James Morrison explains it in detail in the following video:
Illustrious Artist Community: Creme de la Creme
The instruments are appreciated and played by the best of the best. Among them are truly spectacular names:
Top musician Thomas Gansch, known as a founding member of “Mnozil Brass” and “Gansch & Roses”, also professor at JAM MUSIC LAB, plays the Schagerl Bb trumpet “Gansch Horn”, as well as a flugelhorn with the characteristic name “Killer Queen”.
Hungarian Gábor Tarkövi, solo trumpeter of the Berliner Philharmoniker, relies on his master trumpet “Berlin” in Bb and C. As a soloist he plays with numerous other renowned orchestras such as the Chamber Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio, the China Philharmonic Orchestra, the New Japan Philharmonic and the Bach Collegium Munich.
James Morrison, an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist from Australia, is fully equipped with Schaggel, for example with the “Superbone” trombone and the “Raweni” Bb trumpet. Morrison has long been a living legend and has been known to an international audience since his appearance at the opening gala of the Summer Olympics 2000 in Sidney.
Selina Ott feels particularly at home on her two Schagerl models , the “Charis” and “Phoibe”. Already at the age of 11 she convinced a professional audience from all over Europe as a soloist at the gala concert of the European Brass Band Championships in Linz with the Austrian Youth Brass Band. In 2018, at the age of 20, she was the first woman to win the ARD music competition in the trumpet category.
The convincing list of Schagerl artists who carry the brand’s name and sound around the world in the truest sense of the word is enormous. And we are convinced that you will also like to become part of the Schagerl club.

I want to know just how well your pocket trumpets compete with all others especially Kanstul, Benge and Carol Brass.. It very difficult to find information on your pocket trumpets.
