"Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer to create brass instruments of unequalled tonal quality. Often copied but never duplicated, Bach Stradivarius instruments today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide. The Bach C180 series trumpets have truly defined the sound of symphonic brass in symphony orchestras throughout the world.
The Bach C180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional orchestral trumpets in the world. The C180SL229W30 features a #229 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a big, rich, slightly broader sound with great projection. The #25H leadpipe offers a free-blowing feel and a bigger tone with more flexibility. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. These features combined with a .462 large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all orchestral literature."
A fair amount of work was required to prep this Bach 229/25H C Trumpet for sale, but once it was all done, it wound up being an absolutely fantastic player. There was an issue with the 1st and 3rd pistons, and they ended up requiring replacement. Our professional brass technician spent time aligning and lapping the valves to make sure they're consistent with original 2nd valve. Our tech also removed some dents from the bell and 2nd valve slide, and then gave the horn a cleaning in our ultrasonic tank.
A few mild scratches can be found on the bell's throat and flare, but otherwise, this horn is in excellent cosmetic shape. There is no evidence of pitting or red rot on this horn's leadpipe, and the silver plate is 100% intact. A mild dent scar was left on the 2nd valve slide, but one would have to look very close to notice. A Bach double case and 2 3/4C mouthpiece are included with this Bach 229/25H, making this a complete outfit and an excellent deal!
