About his Schagerl C-Trumpet „Wien heavy“

Through the course of my professional career, which spans about 41 years now, I have had the opportunity to play and own a multitude of rotary valve trumpets. In my quest for the “perfect” instrument, each one has represented an improvement over the previous, in terms of sound quality, intonation and playability. I can say without hesitation that my new Schagerl Wien Heavy C trumpet is the best German trumpet I have played to date. It is incredibly responsive and takes very little effort to project. The intonation is about as good as it gets on a trumpet, rotary or otherwise. I have used it on several occasions already in the orchestra and have been very pleased with the results. Passages that have felt clumsy and prone to intonation problems are greatly improved. It is a joy to play, and this is not hyperbole. Thank you for building such a great instrument.

Ganschhornchallenge – the winner…



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


„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


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.
