    I wondered if anyone could help me get hold of the above. I am currently trying out various sopranos with a view to purchasing the best one for me and would really appreciate a blow on the Shilke.

    Has anyone got any advise as to who I should contact?

    Many thanks in advance

    I believe Phil Parker's are the Schilke suppliers for the UK - they have one on their website here.

    Its been a while since I used Phil Parker for anything, but in the past I have always found them helpful and friendly.

    From a quick Google search:

    Band Supplies are advertising a berylium model here.

    ...and Normans have a standard one here, but it does say berylium option also available.

    Hope this helps. :)

    EDIT: Although looking at your location Parker's and Norman's aren't especially local to you!!!

    Thanks for the replys.

    I have been in touch with Glyn Williams who is helping me find a sop and has been really helpful.
    I am currently trying a Courtois and he has organised a Shilke for me too.

    He is just setting up a new buisness and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new instrument.

    His website is
