For more than 60 years the Schilke Music Products has been a leader in brass mouthpiece design and manufacturing. Many of Schilke’s mouthpiece models are classic, unique and have become industry standards.
Renold Schilke and William Scarlett, a Schilke employee and student of Renold O. Schilke before his appointment as 4th trumpet in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1964, developed the Schilke mouthpiece labeling system. The labeling system Schilke still uses today for the Standard Series allows a player to quickly understand how one model relates to another within the mouthpiece line. These mouthpieces were a collaboration with trumpet artists and colleagues of Renold Schilke from 1950’s and early 1960’s.
