The sound of creativity
Swiss precision does not stop at the perfect acoustics. To this end, we are constantly researching new production methods, experimenting and breaking new ground. The results are professional rotary and piston trumpets, which have understood the essence of a good brass instrument. It has to fit like a bespoke suit, sound like an old master and be beautiful like a true masterpiece. The musician sets the tone, whether for solo, symphony or jazz. And you will notice that anyone who takes his Galileo in his hand wants to play it. And whoever plays it, doesn’t want to put it out of their hands anymore.

Galileo as part of Egger
Galileo was founded in 1997 by Ralf Masurat and Michael Krawczack in Radolfzell. With its innovative instrument concepts and an extremely quality-oriented philosophy Galileo has, in the shortest time, earned a worldwide reputation both among solo artists as well as top orchestras and ensembles.
The merger with Egger in 2008 has since maintained and refined this reputation under a common roof. The instrument lines have been continuously developed. Today Galileo has an exceptionally wide range of first-class trumpets, from the orchestra rotary valve B to the perinet high-C piccolo.
