    Yee HAW!
    Oh my! That does look like it'll be a sell-out, doesn't it?

    Interesting about the new manufacturing plant too. Who is "Hay Manufacturing"? Can't find links to them anywhere.

    "Schilke Music Products will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2006 by honoring the legacy of Renold Schilke with a gold plated limited edition hand-engraved model B1 Bb trumpet."

    Engraving? On the Bell?!?! Renold would be pissed!

    Yeah, he might! :lol:

    Actually, was there a reason other than cost that Renold didn't have engraving on his bells? The impression that I have gotten from the materials that I have read is that Renold was committed to putting the best horn out there that he could, and that he sold them for as little as he could and still turn a profit. Paying an engraver and adding extra time to the production would have meant that he would have to charge his customers more than he was already charging.

    I'll have to do some digging on that subject to see what I can find.

    You'd only have to pay the engraver once for making the stamp.

    I think Patrick was referring to the original Schilke trumpets.
    No engraving on the bells.
    The anniversary edition will be engraved and each one a little different.

    I'm not trying to drive a wedge between anyone here, but yes, I was referring to the original Schilkes.

    Is that how that was done? It was just stamped into the metal? Interesting. Personally, I kind of like the plain bells - no frills, just a great horn that kicks #%&. :D

    Yep. It's fun to watch someone peer about the horn trying to figure out what it is (if they don't know about the hex caps).
