Bach Stradivarius 43S 180 ML - Standard Lead Pipe Bb Trumpet

Product Information

The Bach 180ML 43 offers players a more focussed and direct alternative compared to the 37 bell version. The number denotes the mandrel tool used to shape the bell and is not reflective of size but the shape of the taper throughout the bell. This 43S is the silver plated version which also affects the tonal characteristics compared to lacquer.

The 43 shape bell flares differently to the 37, it's a personal choice as to what you may prefer and we'd encourage trying both. In general, players tend to feel the 43 has a more direct projection and clarity compared the 37. We find 43 players tend to more on the commercial, jazz, big band end of the scale. The 37 is arguably the best all round but some like the added focus of the 43. The 180ML series as a whole offers a medium large bore which is 'standard' in Trumpet manufacturing.

Bach trumpets trace their history back to 1925 when master craftsman Vincent Bach introduced the first Bach Stradivarius professional trumpet. Today, Vincent Bach offers a complete line of USA-made student trumpets, intermediate trumpets, and professional trumpets. 

Each Bach trumpet is handcrafted using the highest quality brass found here in the Midwest region of the United States. Vincent Bach professional and intermediate trumpet models are made in Elkhart, Indiana. Each handcrafted Bach trumpet offers the highest degree of durability, unparalleled performance, and a signature Bach sound that is preferred by more professionals than any other brand for their musical instrument.
