Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an 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 Stradivarius model D180 in D has a brilliant tone that blends well with voices and strings making this model effective in oratorio, opera, and high register symphonic repertoire. The 4-13/16" short one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass #236 bell provides a lighter more vibrant sound. The 1st slide thumb saddle make for easy intonation adjustments while the Monel pistons provide smooth quick action. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. The D180 is available with option slides for C trumpet.
