Schilke X3
Fredrick, 13.11.2013
I trialled both the B3 and the X3. If you know Schilke then you know the B3 & X3 are the same trumpet except for the bell - B3 #3 taper/X3 #1 taper. but, they blow and sound quite different!

The descriptions Schilke publish regarding the sound characteristics of their trumpets are incredibly accurate. The B3 is good and the sound is very focussed but for me a little brighter and less free blowing than i wanted. The X3 has a much more open feel/darker sound and that instant Schilke response. Intonation is excellent and there is no problem fitting in with a section of Yamaha or Bach.

What I would say is that it seems to be very sensitive to mouthpiece selection. I've never encountered a trumpet that can behave and sound so different depending on which mouthpiece you use.

Many players I believe are put off the large bore Schilkes fearing they will be too large but the laws relating to large bore size seem to be different for Schilke. Yes it's free blowing but it's not silly & still gives feedback to the player. If you are tempted by the large bore my advice would be to try one. They don't feel that large!

I purchased the both the B3 & X3 and employed Thomann's excellent 30 day money back guarentee to return the B3 keeping the X3.

In short a fantastic trumpet that in sound terms is a real Chameleon depending on how you blow it/mpc selection. I use it for Classical Orchestral playing and despite many preconceptions some have about the sound of schilke trumpets, it is not overly bright in timbre at all - it can play quite Cornet like. Put in a Curry TF/TC mouthpiece and it goes all girly and soft - put in a Warburton SV and close the windows!!

In short - a fantastic trumpet. If you're reading this you're already thinking of buying one. I don't think it'll disappoint!

Tolles Horn, braucht aber Nacharbeit (wie alle Schilke dieser Kategorie)
Chili, 18.09.2012
Die X3 ist, wie alle tp mit rel. großer Bohrung, sehr brilliant bei entsprechendem Lufteinsatz. Sie ist nichts für Gelegenheitsspieler, sie erfordert beständiges
Üben, belohnt dann aber durch ihre Strahlkraft.

Blöd ist die fehlende Wasserklappe und die Arretierschraube am 3. Ventilzug: wenn diese offen ist (und das bleibt sie erstmal, bis man sich warmgespielt hat und ein paar mal das Kondenswasser aus dem Zug gelassen hat), rutscht durch die Leichtgängigkeit (eigentlich sehr schön!)bei geöffnetem 3. Ventil der Zug heraus und fällt auf den (natürlich) harten Boden: die erste Beule war nach 2 Tagen drin!

Habe mir dann beim örtlichen tp-Bauer meines Vertrauens (Claus Popp in Hamburg) eine Wasserklappe in den 3. Ventilzug einbauen lassen - nun kann die Arretierschraube immer "zu" sein!

Wahrscheinlich werden mich nun die Puristen schelten und behaupten, die fehlende Wasserklappe ist soundmäßig beabsichtigt, ich kann jedenfalls nach der Modifikation (nun mit Wasserklappe) nichts Nachteiliges feststellen!

Klasse Trompete
Matthias481, 26.12.2013
Die Trompete spricht super an, nach oben offen. Aufgrund der Bohrung klingt die Trompete auch unten voll. Töne lassen sich im hohen Bereich sehr gut formen.
Nachteile: Eine fehlende 2. Wasserklappe. Diese habe ich für 40 € beim Instruentenbauer nachrüsten lassen (Thomann war zu teuer). Die Ventildeckel haben innen keinen Rand, so dass das Ventilöl immer ausläuft. habe mir beim Kauf andere mitgenommen.

Fazit:
Eine Profi- Trompete mit der man Gas geben kann. Aufgrund der etwas größeren Bohrung muss mann aber regelmäßig üben, sonst wird man wenig freude daran haben (ist aber generell so). Würde die Trompete wieder kaufen.

Mal ganz abgesehen von den inneren Werten:
Die Schilke ist einfach wunderschön. Schnörkelloses,
pures Design. Das Instrument liegt geschmeidig in der Hand
und erzeugt auch beim Spielen Herzklopfen.
Für mich in jeder Hinsicht eine Ikone.
