For sale in the shop is a customized late 1980's Bach Stradivarius 72* trumpet in silver plate! This horn has been played regularly and has had some custom work to make it a very responsive and free blowing horn. Several of the braces on this horn have been customized including flipping the front bell brace so it faces backward from the leadpipe to the bell. This allows a larger partion of the bell to vibrate. The brace between the second valve casing and the bell has been cut, also helping the bell to vibrate. One of the braces between the leadpipe and the lower tuning slide receiver was removed. The tuning slide it not original and is lacquered. The rest of the horn is in good condition but does show some signs of previous work. At one point the bell was damaged and repaired. This can seen at the brace between the leadpipe and bell where the bell was straightened and resoldered. There are other minor areas of silver loss and pitting at the contact points.
