Engelbert Schmid Bell Flares


Yellow Brass
dark rich core with light overtones with an even diphthong throughout register changes and volumes... great projection
Gold Brass
mid level dynamics are incredibly interesting, as dynamics become louder, the core decreases and the higher overtones have a tendency to be highly excited and take over. I have been saying for years that gold brass is "an untamed beast"
Nickel Silver
A naturally bright alloy that is typically chosen with larger bell flares which creates a width of sound, warm and rich, yet adds great sizzle in the louder dynamics. Most, with this size bell taper, would consider the sound to be bright.
A typically nickel silver band that is soldered in at the bell wire/bead. Width can vary, but we like a kranz 20mm wide. This allows for engraving, should you want it. Adding a Kranz to a spun flare will provide a very centered, compact tone without many higher overtones but powerful with a projection determined to strip paint off of the walls in the back of the hall.
