MINT OPEN BOX SCHILKE B-5 PROFESSIONAL Bb TRUMPET. Condition is mint, perfect; no scratches, no dings, no blemishes of any kind. Having been an authorized dealer for Schilke trumpets since 1965, I do have some history with the company.
Renold Schilke told me, himself, that HIS favorite models were the B-1 and B-5. Most of our sales for Schilkes are "special made to order" instruments. But we always have a handful in our shop. This instrument is NEW, "untouched by human hands" as we say. It's a little less expensive due to the simple fact that it has an IMPORT case with it.Highest recommendation on the B-1, B-5 and X-3 trumpets from this superb company! BEFORE WE SEND ANYTHING TO YOU. The instrument is carefully inspected by us to make certain its spotlessly clean. We disinfect the exterior of the instrument, spray the exterior of the case as well. We do not send anything to you without its being checked and then checked again.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR SENDING ON APPROVAL. Weve had the same policy for half a century, are always happy to send almost anything for a short trial period. Five days is, we believe, sufficient for a trained musician to decide if the item sent them is a good match. With BRASS instruments, we take everything apart, then give the instrument a quick bath.
Soap and water, but not long enough to harm the finish. Everything is lightly sprayed with a disinfectant, Then, back in the case after a spray to the exterior and carrying handles of the case. Not sure what the other shops are doing about this issue (Ive asked, have had no replies), but we think our clean-up work is exactly whats required to keep everybody safe. Wichita Band Instrument Company is a small musical instrument emporium located in the center of the USA. We've been in business since 1953 and have had the same owner since 1963.Originally we were a repair shop that specialized in woodwind and sax restoration. Today we have 13 employees including five of the finest repair technicians in the country. Virtually ALL the items we sell have been fully reconditioned in our own shop, although we do sell the occasional unrestored historical instruments each year.
It's in addition to any factory guarantees. For two full years, we will repair or replace - whichever in our estimation is the more advisable - pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer. In the event of cracked or damaged wood sections, we will repair at no cost to the customer or replace the section and charge the customer only for our net costs for the replacement section. If your instrument sustains damage to the body, end bow, neck or bell, we'll burnish out the dents and make it look like new again. Wichita Band Instrument Company maintains a repair department capable of restoration work of the highest quality.
Even though repairs are essentially free for the first two years, after that period has expired, we remain at your service to maintain and repair your musical equipment forever. It's our'service after the sale' promise and has been since 1953!
Anything we sell can be sent to you for a short approval period without obligation. We're happy to correspond with musicians, players, parents and enthusiasts of all types.
