Matching Exceptional Students With Quality Instruments. One of several professional trumpets we are offering for sale this back-to-school season: Bach Stradivarius Model LT180S43 (43) silver trumpet in Bb. This is a 43-taper bell on a lightweight body, which gives it a great balance of color, projection, and responsiveness. S/n 908XX makes it roughly 1973, and thus it has the coveted Corporation bell.Very good condition: medium plating wear on the right side of the valve casing as usual, which is mostly covered by the included Bach valve guard. Very small, scattered dings along the bell, but almost nothing that even shows up in a photo. All tuning slides free including the third-valve dump slide.
The top inner slide of the main tuning slide had a small dent removed, and while it does go in and out properly, the last ¼ or so is tight. Just through the shop where it had small dents removed, and was chem cleaned, lubed, and had a new water key cork installed. Comes in the period Bach hard case in generally good condition.
Includes a Bach valve guard, Leblanc Alessi Vacchiano straight mute, and 7c mouthpiece. An excellent, hard-to-find horn from a great Bach period, and just in time for marching band!
