The result of design collaboration with Marc Geujon, “Super-Soliste” of the Opera de Paris Orchestra, the SC4-MG was truly a first at Schilke Music. Like its Bb counterpart, almost every aspect of this trumpet was created over a year and a half. At the heart of the Soloiste Series is a new valve casing. This new design offers a resonant, clear sound through an instrument’s register. The SC4-MG’s leadpipe and bell are also new designs, created specifically for Mr. Geujon.Soloiste Series C Trumpets feature an exquisite bell engraving, adding an elegant touch to an elite series. These models each include a beautiful newly designed Soloiste Series double case & Symphony Series mouthpiece. Hand crafted and hand fit, every Soloiste is covered by the Schilke Limited Lifetime Warranty.

All Soloiste Series C Trumpets come standard with a hand-hammered yellow brass bell. Yellow brass bells are consistent in tonal color regardless of dynamics.
Detachable tuning bells are available by special order on any Soloiste Series C Trumpet. The advantage of the tuning bell feature is that the tuning slide can be left all the way in or moved only a little, thereby keeping the bore relatively free of gaps that may cause a disturbance in the nodal pattern of the sound wave. Another advantage is that different bells of varying tapers, materials and finishes may be used to change characteristics of the instrument.
The Soloiste Series C Trumpets feature a three-part nomenclature. The first two letters indicates Series and Key (S for Soloiste, and C for C), the number indicates iteration of the valve block (4 for the 4th prototype in this series), and the final two letters are the initials of the Artist the instrument was designed for (MG for Marc Geujon or OT for Osamu Takahashi).
