Fifty years ago, Bach moved its operations from Mt. Vernon, NY to Elkhart, Indiana. While those old Mt. Vernon Bach trumpets and the mouthpieces from those days are collectible and possess a unique charm, the early Stradivarius models from the Elkhart factory established and cultivated their own unrepeatable legacy. This is the 19037 Stradivarius 50th Anniversary Model, a combined homage and celebration of the original Stradivarius models that rolled off the line in 1965. It is available in lacquer or with silver plating (Bach Stradivarius 190S37), which you can select from the dropdown menu.
This resonance, combined with improved flexibility, allows the player to play with a greater presence without working harder. Characteristic of the traditional Stradivarius trumpet, the 19037 series can perform in any situation from classical to jazz. The 19037 Stradivarius Series Bb trumpet includes a Bach 3C mouthpiece and anniversary woodshell case and is available in lacquer or silver finish.
A legend revisited.
Bach 180 Series vs. 190 Series
The Bach 190S 50th Anniversary trumpets are built on the new 190 Stradivarius platform. At it’s core, the 190 platform simply refers to the horn’s valve casings.
- Bach 180 Series: Standard 1 Piece Valve Casings made from brass
- Bach 190 Series: 2 Piece Valve Casings with Nickel-Silver or Bronze Upper Balusters
