The B&S 3137 Challenger I trumpet is 100% German-made and holds true to the brand's 250-year-old tradition of making high quality brass instruments. The 3137 is a professional Bb trumpet with classic and familiar ergonomic features.

The 3137 features a very unique one-piece hand-hammered bell made in the traditional way using the knowledge of skilled master craftsmen at B&S who use hands-on techniques. This allows the trumpet to be full of rich colours and resonate freely with a wide array of characteristics.

Though I have several other trumpets/cornets/fluegelhorns from Yamaha, Blessing and V.Bach, my silver Challenger (from L&M) is easily my favorite. It has it all: fine tone, good mechanisms, and just a great feel - it does make playing a satisfying experience. I had a Challenger II model as well, but the heavier brass did nothing for the tone, and made it weigh more.
