Bach Bb Trumpets

Bach Stradivarius continues to be, by far, the world’s choice in professional brass. Their Bb trumpet line presents a comprehensive range of configurations of weight, bell model, leadpipe design, bore size, and finish---whatever style of trumpet playing you do and whatever your personal requirements of a horn, there is a Bach Bb model ideal to suit your needs.

The 180 series is Bach's time-honored standard line, available in the full range of bore sizes. The LR series utilizes reversed leadpipes, which are longer, present less resistance, and have the open, free-blowing quality common to trumpet designs of recent decades; it also incorporates lightweight bodies with standard weight bells, further increasing the flexibility and quickness of response already characteristic of the reversed leadpipe while maintaining full-bodied timbre and good projection. The LT series is Bach's lightweight line, offering trumpets ideal for commercial work, studio sessions, dance bands, and lead playing.
