Schilke French Horn Mouthpiece
The Schilke French Horn mouthpiece line was developed in collaboration with professional players and colleagues of Renold O. Schilke. These models were later determined to fill a specific need in the horn community from student, educator, to professional player. The rims and cups shape provide variety of options for the soloist, chamber, or orchestral hornist.
