The famous Bach Strad models are revered around the world by brass players and teachers. Produced in the US, the Strad models are a benchmark for pro quality instruments, this 184S ML pre-owned Cornet is no different.
The 184S features a .459" medium-large bore, with a hand hammered bell which offers a flexible and vibrant tone. The monel pistons offer a slick action and a first slide trigger ensures quick and easy fine tuning. These Cornets feel comfortable in the hands and are at home in a variety of musical scenarios.
This particular example is in good clean overall condition. There are some light signs of aesthetic use but the plating is generally in smart order across the whole instrument. The valves & slides have all been checked and set-up in our brass workshop prior to sale. As such, all valves operate freely and the slides and trigger operate perfectly.
This instrument comes with the original Bach case, with a mute and stand, but no mouthpiece. In summary, it would be an excellent option for any advancing Cornet player. The Bach Strad is often used in Brass Band situations and many other Brass ensembles. Bearing in mind the new cost is over £3,000 this is a great way to pick up a top pro instrument at a fraction of the new cost.
