Well, I guess Doug might be THE expert here, but I am trying to get a good guess on the cup depth of the Schilke 51B large bore. Looks more like an E to me, but perhaps it is even shallower...more a D depth? Any opinions?

Most 51's are considerably bigger in the rim than their spec size. Agreed, the 51 is closer to 25.8mm and as deep as a Bach 4G. As mentioned earlier, the Hammond 12L is indeed even a bit deeper in my estimation, like a 51D. The 51 is for principals needing the larger cup/volume or many second roles.
