Ganschhornchallenge – the winner…

17.08.2022

ANNIVERSARY – GANSCHHORN CHALLENGE – 20 YEARS GANSCHHORN 2002 – 2022

In 2002 our Schagerl Ganschhorn was created at the request of Thomas Gansch!
It was important for Thomas that the trumpet could be operated perfectly with one hand and that it had the advantages of a rotary valve trumpet in terms of playing and sound.

On the occasion of this 20th anniversary and our 60th company anniversary, the Ganschhorn was updated and we started the GANSCHHORNCHALLENGE together with Thomas Gansch.
Anyone under the age of 18 could send in their musical contribution and had the chance to win the main prize, a SCHAGERL Ganschhorn anniversary model.

Over 140 participants then picked up their instruments and sent us and Thomas great videos.
From all the submissions, Thomas standardized the 10 best, greatest, most impressive contributions.

The Winner is Mihran Araqelyan (Youtube-Video)

We congratulate all winners and thank each and everyone for the great musical videos!

All Submissions (Youtube)

The winners Moritz Nowotny (2nd place) and Lukas Milchram (8th place) picked up their prize personally at our company. On this occasion you could visit our company and test all our models.

Prof. Andrew Classen about his Schagerl C-Trumpet Berlin heavy

24.06.2022

„I received my Schagerl Berlin Heavy Rotary C in the middle of rehearsals for Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. I was locked into the horn in the first hour. It has a warm and beautiful sound. Intonation is excellent. It make playing the Germanic repertoire way easier and more fun (let’s face it, V-I gets a bit boring at times). If you want the best rotary trumpet on the market, get a Schagerl.“
(Prof. Andrew Classen – Professor of Trumpet and Jazz Studies at Drake University)

Successful with Schagerl Trumpets

21.06.2022

Congratulate Dr. Federico Montes and Kevin Karabell, who won the audition with their Schagerl C-trumpets BERLIN heavy!

Dr. Federico Montes Associate Principal Trumpet Omaha Symphony and Kevin Karabell Principal Trumpet Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra!

Dr. Federico Montes about his Instrument:
My Berlin Heavy Z rotary trumpet has everything I ever imagined an incredible rotary trumpet would have. The range and variety of colors available to unlock within it are unimaginable and not to mention its incredible easiness to play and not just to play but to play in tune and fit in with the sound of the orchestra. I have enjoyed playing this horn in various orchestras in North America, not only in concerts but also in auditions since now many orchestras are strongly encouraging or requiring candidates to perform in rotary trumpets. I believe Schagerl has revolutionized the rotary trumpet in the world. 

Kevin Karabell about his Instrument:
My Schagerl Berlin heavy C trumpet allows me to express myself without any limitations. Regardless of the color, articulation, dynamic, or range I choose to present, this instrument truly allows me to communicate freely. Master craftsmanship allows for an immediate response and beautifully resonant sound.

Harold Madrigal Frias plays Schagerl James Morrsion Trumpet

07.06.2022

Harold Madrigal Frias began his musical studies aged 8 in the National School of Arts in Havana, Cuba.
Already as a student he played with some of the top Cuban bands and over the years worked as a lead trumpet with the Joaquín Betancourt’s Jazz band, Cesar López & the Habana Ensemble, Roberto Fonseca & Bandidos All-Stars and the world famous Buena Vista Social Club and Orquesta Akokán.
Harold has been the principal trumpet of the Havana Lyceum Orchestra since 2008. For him it is very important to cultivate the flexibility of performing both Cuban and classical music – something quite tricky for a trumpet embouchure and something his Schagerl trumpet is a huge help with!

Harold has recorded and shared the stage with important world musicians like: Sarah Willis, Thomas Hengelbrock, Simone Dinnerstein ,Ronald Zollman, Walter Reiter, Remy Ballot and Duncan Ward.
He has been featured in different Festivals around the world such as: WOMAD UK, WOMAD NZ, WOMADELAIDE, Fiest‘A Sete Festival, Les Nuits de Fourviére, Nice Jazz, Nancy Pulsations, North Sea Jazz Festival, SF Jazz, Global Fest , Midnight Summer Jazz Festival, Sydney Fest, etc.

My Schagerl James Morrison Trumpet

My Schagerl trumpet is simply the perfect tool to help me transition smoothly from the classical music world to commercial and popular music playing. Its warm sound and wide sound spectrum enables me to go from a morning rehearsal of Mozart with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra to a night filled with Mambo and Cuban music solos. It makes my world much easier and I will be forever grateful to Karl Schagerl for making this possible.

My Schagerl trumpet was organised as a surprise from my dear friend Sarah Willis. It was made possible by the Instruments for Cuba fund set up as part of her Mozart & Mambo project together with the generousity of Karl Schagerl. In Cuba it is a rare thing to receive a brand new instrument and seeing the name Schagerl and unboxing the trumpet, I was like a kid opening a treasure. Playing the trumpet for the first time was an unforgettable moment and it remains my most prized posession.
