Up for sale is a very nice playing Bach Stradivarius Bb trumpet, model 25. This horn was originally made in 1977, the year after Vincent Bach passed away. After establishing the standard in trumpets, Vincent Bach built his company into an empire in the music world, and his company was purchased by H&A Selmer, who moved the company from New York to Elkhart, Indiana to grow and further the company's position in the marketplace. While the older New York made instruments command generally the most money with collectors, the early Elkhart, IN made instruments are also very coveted. As it is said, Vincent Bach was very involved with the continuation of his instruments, to ensure his legacy would live on. In general it is said that the Bach Strad instruments made prior to 1995 are what you want to find if you are in the market for a solidly built Trumpet. And certainly prior to 2002.
This instrument has been PLAYED! There are signs of wear and tear on the horn, with some signs of dent work in the bell. But the instrument is free of any dents, and has been professionally cleaned and polished. The valves have been aligned, and the slides and valves treated to feel nice and smooth. Mechanically this is sound!
This horn plays very well! It has a huge fat sound, with a lot of meat in the mid to upper register. It has a large bore, so won't break up at louder dynamics. The flexibility is superb, and this horn slots beautifully.
I will be happy to ship this instrument. Please consider $30 for shipping to most places in the US. Thanks!
