The Bach Stradivarius trumpet is one of the most popular trumpets in the world for a reason - they have a special ring that few other horns can match. This horn is set up for the commercial player, with a 43 Bell and 25 leadpipe, making this horn free blowing in all registers. This horn would also blend well in wind ensembles, when Vincent Bach was still in charge of manufacturing, the 37 and 43 bells were produced in similar quantities due to the flexibility of sound with small mouthpiece changes.
This horn has clearly seen some useage in the past but was never abused- recently cleaned and serviced here at ACB.
No dents or dings present and the lacquer has some worn spots on the valve casing and bell as you can see.
Leadpipe has no red rot or spotting we pressure tested it with a few of our tools here and it measured fine.
Valves have good compression and play very well with Hetman #2 or 3 piston oil.
We have professionally cleaned and aligned the horn here at the shop. It's a solid player with a wonderful sound and priced to sell!
