"Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both an accomplished musician and a talented 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 180 series Bb trumpets are the most versatile available offering more options that meet the demanding needs of today's most discriminating players.
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."
How lucky! Another great Bach horn from a great generation of Bach instruments! Manufactured in Elkhart, IN in the mid to late-80's puts this trumpet in what some would consider the "golden age" of Elkhart Bach trumpets. This one came to us in good shape, and includes a Protec fitted case. Our professional brass technician gave the horn an ultrasonic bath, lubed up the slides and pistons, polished up the silver, removed some minor dents from the bell, and the horn is in ready-to-take-home condition.
Some obvious plating wear can be found around the valve section and on the underside of the bell and leadpipe where they are braced to the valve section, and less obvious plating wear can be found on the 2nd valve slide and on some of the tuning slide ferrules. Some minor scratches can be found on the bell section if you look closely, and some evidence of solder work can be found around the Z-braces and the 1st slide to bell brace, but our tech did not perform any soldering on this horn. It was definitely worked on in its previous life, but it's an excellent player, so it all the work was absolutely worth any blemishes that were left on this instrument.
