The Vincent Bach 180 series B-flat trumpets are the most versatile available and the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The LR180 models feature lightweight bodies, a standard weight bell and reversed leadpipes. This combination of a lightweight model with less resistance from the reverse leadpipe and the projection of a standard weight #43G gold brass bell results in a more open feel with slightly more control and a vivid response, well suited to all types of music.

† Bach bell models:
When Vincent Bach began manufacturing instruments in the early 1920s, his experiments resulted in over 70 different trumpet bell models, each numbered according to the ‘mandrel’ or mould it was shaped upon. By the early 1950s certain standard models had emerged, those we now know as #37, #43 and #72. The model #37 is regarded as the standard all-round bell, suitable for all styles; the #43 is broader, brighter and more open than the #37 (suitable for jazz lead); the #72 has a strong, powerful sound, darker than the #37 (but takes more effort to play than the #37 or #43).
