      OVERVIEW

      The best Bach for all-around playing!

      The Bach Stradivarius 180S37 Silver Professional Bb Trumpet offers the 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 the 180S37 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 and is available in silver finish.
      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.

          Trumpet arrived in perfectly new sealed box condition. Can't beat the price and customer service is exemplary. I highly recommend buying all your musical gear from MF.

          Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

          Bought my Bb LR180S37 Bach Strad trumpet new, on 9/25/13, at a local music store. It has a good tone. I like the reverse lead pipe and the slide guard on the 3rd valve slide. The valves stick all the time, and despite constant wiping and re-oiling the valves, they often still stick. I get a lot of water in the valve slides and have to pull them out to empty them a lot, like a French horn player has to do. Other brands I've played never gave me the same problems to the extent this new Bach Strad does. Also, the case, while well padded, doesn't have much room for accessories like mutes, oil, slide grease, and extra mouthpieces. For the hefty price, I expected not to have the problems I've encountered with it.

          Purchased it for my daughter. She had been playing a cornet for a couple of years and had outgrown it. She loves it.

            Even with this expensive piece, Musician Friends honored their 20% discount coupon. It shipped and arrived sooner than expected. The instrument came in very nice looking case, also better than expected.

              Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

              I bought this Bach about 27 years ago. I play on average 2 to 5 times a week since I bought it. I use it for everything. Jazz, accompaniment, studio, live outdoor concerts, lead solos it can do it all. I have tried a lot of different horns in my 38 year career and I have not found anything that even comes close. While I do play a Yamaha flugelhorn also, my Bach is my go to horn. It is an amazing horn and has never let me down or disappointed my audience. As it ages it just keeps getting better every time I pick it up. I can't imagine walking on stage with anything else.

              Not Good

              By 

              from Waterbury VT

              Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

              Let me just start by saying I know I have a dud. I have played around four other bach strad. 37's and they all play and feel amazing. Great tone and intonation, everything. However, the one I have has so much resistance it feels like there is something jammed inside the bell. The lower register is terrible even with different mouthpieces. For $2,000+ I would expect more quality on every trumpet. Bach let one slide. I gave a 3.0 for the overall score because there certainly are good ones out there.

              Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

              It's pretty good. The tone could be a little warmer than it is, even with all the mouthpieces I've tried. It's fairly crisp, and it's the only thing I march with. It's somewhat versatile, so I can use it for a lot. My first Bach, and it's better than any Yamaha I've played.
