Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both an accomplished musician and a talented 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 180 series B♭ trumpets are the most versatile available, offering a depth and color of sound coupled with the even intonation and response that meet the demanding needs of today's most discriminating players. Nothing beats the sound of a Bach.
The Bach 180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The 180S37 features a #37 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a warm sound with great projection allowing 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. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. These features combined with a .459" medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all types of music.
Available with a reverse leadpipe as 180S43R, silver finish with a #37 bell and reverse leadpipe 180S37R, or a #43 lacquer bell with reverse leadpipe as 18043R. A reverse leadpipe slides into the tuning slide instead of the tuning slide sliding into the leadpipe. There is no narrowing of the tube, just expansion, which eliminates air push back, providing slightly less resistance and better control over tone and intonation.
