Just in the shop is a pre-owned Bach Commercial LT190S1B ML bore trumpet in silver plate! This horn does show signs of use including some silver wear on the underside of the third slide as well as small surface scratches from regular use and wear marks on the inside of the bell from being placed on a trumpet stand. These are purely cosmetic and will not affect how the horn plays or sounds. There is a small dent on the second valve slide that will be removed prior to shipping.
Included in the sale is the original case as well as the second "D" tuning slide.
This horn was recently cleaned and had a precision valve alignment here at ACB.
A recent trade-in to the shop and only one available at this price!

Skillfully handcrafted, Artisan culminates in a unique blend of classic design, elegant styling, and the signature Bach sound.

"Stradivarius" - 190 Series - Key of Bb, .459" ML bore, standard weight body, lightweight one-piece hand-hammered #1 bronze bell with 5" French-style bell rim, two-piece valve construction with brass valves and bronze ballusters, standard construction modified #43 leadpipe, Monel pistons, 1st slide thumb ring, lightweight brass outer and lightweight nickel-silver inner valve slide tubes, forward facing 2nd valve slide, crescent-shaped valve pul knobs, two main tuning slides standard - "D" shape and single radius, clear lacquer finish.
#1 Lightweight bronze bell - Very first bell taper design Vincent Bach produced in 1925. Original production notes indicate “Plays easy in upper register”
- Extremely lightweight bronze bell material which produces a clear, brilliant sound
- Flat rim (French Bead) helps with better sound projection
- Extremely lightweight body tubing wit - Helps to produce lightning fast response. Also, the brass outer and nickel inner tubing unlike materials (brass outer/nickel inner) will give a smoother, quicker operational feel
Two-piece valve casing with Bronze- Beautiful “old-school” look on horns with lacquer baluster finish. Significantly contributes to the overall tonal character of the trumpet
.459” medium-large bore
Second valve slide faces forward- New look for Bach Stradivarius trumpets yet a “throw-back” look to the French Besson trumpets made in the 1800’s
Modified #43 lead-pipe- Open lead-pipe for quick, open, yet controlled response. Even response in all registers
Comes standard with two tuning slides- Standard “D” shaped tuning slide for “traditional” Bach slotting of notes, and “rounded” shaped tuning slide for more open and flexible slotting of notes
Added water-key on third slide crook- Additional “Amado” water-key on third slide for quick removal of condensation
1st and 3rd slide rings - Securely holds thumb and ring finger
Reduced bracing on the slide tubes- Makes this a very “free” responding trumpet in all registers by reducing soldered contact points
Pin-style third slide stop assembly- “New” look for Bach Stradivarius Bb trumpets. Also reduces weight and soldered contact points to allow freer response
Newly designed crescent shaped- For ease of removing the 1 – 2 – 3 valve slides. “pull knobs” on 1st – 2nd – 3rd slides
