    I don't know that I'd buy anything called "Schill". I mean, you have to admit, it's a rather unfortunate name for a business, no? It's a little like being referred to a law firm called "Dewey, Cheatham & Howe".

    Manny, I think the CarTalk guys get a royalty from you since you used that joke!

    Anyway, I've never heard of Schill either.

    Nah, Gordie Howe used it for years in Detroit.

    Schill is yet another stamp being applied to Chinese horns in a feeble attempt to confuse the first-time buyer into thinking they're getting a Schilke "for cheap". The guys bringing in the container loads of this cr*p keep changing the stamping on the bells every few months to disguise the fact that they're all the same thing... probably from the same factory.

    Reminds me of a very popular horn in the fifties and early sixties, the (and I'm not making this up) Conn Artist.

    You have to read quite a lot before Schill gets mentioned, but they do...

    I would hazard a guess that if its being marketed as 'brand new' and is that cheap.........its crap. Buy a used pro horn, it will serve you far better

    Customer: "I'd like to get a bottle of valve oil for my new Schill trumpet"

    The store owner thinks for a minute and replies: "OK, that sounds like a fair trade to me."
