The Schilke Standard Series 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 students, to educators, to professional players. The rims and cups shape provide variety of options for the soloist and chamber or orchestral hornist.
