"The Bach 180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The 180S37 features a #37 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a warm sound with great projection allowing 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. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. These features combined with a .459" medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all types of music."
This Bach Strad is a great horn from a great generation of horns! Manufactured in Elkhart, IN in the mid-80's puts this trumpet in one of the "sweet spots" that many Bach loyalists tend to gravitate toward when shopping for a 37. It's definitely worth stopping by to check out! The way that this horn plays is what makes it a stand-out instrument. Just trust us.
When this Bach 37 arrived here in our shop, it needed an ultrasonic cleaning, some bell dents worked out, and the front bell brace needed to be re-soldered and cleaned up. Our professional brass tech took care of all of that, and also put some new 3rd valve slide stop screws and O-rings on the horn. Some minor plating wear can be found near the main tuning slide crook, and and there is evidence of soldering work done on the front bell brace. Some other very minor things a player might notice when inspecting the horn is one very minor ding in the leadpipe, and some additional plating wear on the bottom valve caps. Outside of that, there are some tiny scuffs and scrapes along the bell throat. None of these cosmetic issues will affect the way the horn plays, and are typically expected on a horn that's nearly 40 years old.
This trumpet comes with its original case and a Bach 1.5C mouthpiece. It plays great, and 37s don't usually last very long here, so hurry over to check it out!
