    Has anyone heard of or had experience with the Schiller American Heritage Bass Trumpet? It's said to be designed in Germany and assembled in China. It's on ebay for around $500.00 new.

    thanks.......... crow

    thanks Nieuwguyski,
    I asked the seller if these are Bb horns? Do you know if you can read Bb music, and use trumpet fingering?

    Yes, they're Bb instruments. You would be able to play Bb music with your familiar fingerings, and it would sound an octave lower than a Bb trumpet.
