The ‘190’ generation of Bach Stradivarius trumpets was introduced in 2010. They are characterised by a vintage two-piece valve casing design, contrasting with the one-piece casings used on Bach instruments since the late 1970s.
A two-piece casing provides more feedback to the player, a quicker response and more colour in the sound. These features are accentuated in the 190S43 model by nickel silver outer slides, brass valve guides and steel bell wire.
Products marked as 'ex-demo' are offered at a reduced price because they have been used for inspection, demonstration or marketing purposes by the manufacturer or seller. They are not factory-sealed, but are sold 'as new' and are subject to a full mechanical warranty. In some cases they may have a limited cosmetic warranty.
This particular instrument arrived from the factory with transit damage to the bell section. Conn-Selmer’s warranty technician made an excellent repair and the instrument is fully guaranteed. There is little evidence of the original damage, which occurred whilst the instrument was inside its boxed case.
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).
