Great playing Bach Stradivarius 180S37 Trumpet in silver plate
While the finish isn't the best on this horn (some signs of silver bubbling around the bell, some plating loss on bell, and some signs of surface scratching) this horn PLAYS! Great core, good responsiveness and doesn't close up in the higher register like other Bach 37's tend to do.

The most popular Bach Stradivarius pro trumpet design.
The Bach Stradivarius 180S37 Silver Professional Bb Trumpet offers depth and color of sound, coupled with the even intonation and response a professional player needs. Good for all-around playing, this Bach 180 Strad Pro Trumpet features a standard weight body and #37 bell, plus a standard construction #25 mouthpipe in silver finish. The most popular Bach Stradivarius trumpet available today is the 180S37 with a yellow brass bell. This trumpet is also available with a 1st valve trigger (180S37T) or 1st and 3rd valve triggers (180S37W55), or with a gold brass bell (180S37G). The Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Silver Professional Bb Trumpet includes a case and mouthpiece.
The 180S-37 features a #37 bell with a medium-fast taper to produce a sound that has a brilliant sound with a warm quality that allows this instrument to work well in multiple musical settings”from jazz to concert or solo playing. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. These features combined with a .459-inch medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound while not over-extending the endurance level of the player. The Monel valve material allows the pistons to be machined to a consistent diameter throughout the entire length of the valve to produce a more efficient "seal" between the piston and the interior wall of the valve casing. The result is less air leakage that could cause performance problems.
