SCHAGERL ITALIA is the official distributor for Italy of the entire range of instruments from the historic Austrian manufacturer of MANK.

The traditional company has existed in the second generation for over half a century and has grown from a music dealer with a repair shop to one of the most well-known instrument makers in the world. The sound and the best quality of the instruments, made by master craftsmen in the small Hörsdorf near Mank in the district of Melk / Lower Austria, are now delighting orchestral musicians from all over the world. True to the corporate motto "In quality we trust", all master instruments are completely self-produced. With Prof. Hans Gansch, already legendary during his life, former solo trumpeter of the Vienna Philharmonic and professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the joint collaboration for the development of rotary valve trumpets began 25 years ago.

Even today all the master instruments are made with the best musicians such as: Thomas Gansch (Mnozil Brass - model "Gansch Horn" and "Killer Queen"), Gábor Tarkövi (solo trumpeter of the Berlin Philharmonic - model "Berlin"), James Morrison (international multi-instrumentalist - Model "James Morrison", "Superbone") and much more. continuously developed and perfected.

"We really like working on sounds, which thanks to our musicians then go around the world", explains Karl Schagerl. "This drives us, this is how we set standards."
