B&S Challenger Trumpet – Lacquer Finish
Handmade in Germany – 3137L
Handmade in Germany, the B&S Challenger Trumpet line offers one of the most amazing professional trumpet performance values on the market. The Challenger Trumpet line is based around a traditional professional design and hand-made with the care and craftsmanship that one would expect from a German made professional instrument.
The B&S Challenger Trumpets have been consistently among our best selling professional trumpets for over 20 years! A teacher & player favorite due to their excellent combination of Performance, Quality, Consistency and Affordability!
The B&S Challenger Trumpet (3137 Series) is available in 3 finishes:
- Clear Lacquer
- Dark Gold Lacquer
- Bright Silver Plate
Which is better?
Neither really… it’s all a personal preference. The dark gold lacquer has gained in popularity due to it’s unique look that is similar in color to a gold plated trumpet. Dave Kessler prefers the standard lacquer since you can see the various colors of the 3 different metals used in the construction – Brass, Goldbrass & Nickel-Silver.
