Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet

The Bach Stradivarius 180S37 Silver Professional Bb Trumpet offers depth and color of sound, coupled with the even intonation and response a professional player needs. Good for all-around playing, this Bach 180 Strad Pro Trumpet features a standard weight body and #37 bell, plus a standard construction #25 mouthpipe in silver finish. The most popular Bach Stradivarius trumpet available today is the 180S37 with a yellow brass bell. This trumpet is also available with a 1st valve trigger (180S37T) or 1st and 3rd valve triggers (180S37W55), or with a gold brass bell (180S37G). The Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Silver Professional Bb Trumpet includes a case and mouthpiece.

The 180S-37 features a #37 bell with a medium-fast taper to produce a sound that has a brilliant sound with a warm quality that allows this instrument to work well in multiple musical settings—from jazz to concert or solo playing. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. These features combined with a .459-inch medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound while not over-extending the endurance level of the player. The Monel valve material allows the pistons to be machined to a consistent diameter throughout the entire length of the valve to produce a more efficient "seal" between the piston and the interior wall of the valve casing. The result is less air leakage that could cause performance problems.

So Many People Have Them For A Reason

By Ben from Rockville, MD on 2/15/2011 10:35:49 PM

The Bach Strad is a great horn because of its consistent quality. As with all horns, playing them to compare is the best method (even within the same model) but you'll notice this one is free-blowing with relatively focused intonation. The slides are exceptionally smooth and I have had very few issues with the pistons. The design of the water key is great in that they keep to the traditional lever mechanism. It makes it very easy to replace if need be. The horn has a wonderful luster to the finish (silver) but I would recommend a leather valve guard since some people's hand-chemistry will react with the finish. While on the point of hands, players with smaller hands may find that the ring on the 3rd valve slide is a bit far away since it is not adjustable. This may require changing your technique a bit but it is not a huge deal. All in all, a very nice horn that plays easily across all registers with a rich, somewhat dark tone. If you want something that screams with a bit more "zing" to it, check out a Schilke.

#1 for Orchestra or Solos

By Music 4 Life from Gaithersburg, MD on 2/15/2011 10:32:40 PM

Bought this trumpet in HS. Used in college and still sounds great. This is what many pro players use. Has a great sound from low notes to high notes. It blends nicely with other instruments but can play out for solos. Mine has some dents but I would never sell it. Maybe I could get a newer model.
