        Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

        I have tried so many trumpets in the last 40 years that I can't count them. I have hoped to find a trumpet better than this one but I just can't! I have tried vintage and most pro brands. I do trumpet repair and get to play all trumpets that I work on as well. If I try another horn for a gig, I always gravitate to this one again. This horn has made me more money than all other trumpets I have owned combined!

          I have a 43 model from the 90s. My grandson is also playing the trumpet. So, I purchased this new one so I can give my grandson the old one. Great trumpet and very light.

            Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

            I love this horn. I must have tried a few dozen horns but this was the one for me. I love the more open feel of the bell compared to the 37 and the reversed lead pipe gives very little back pressure. It's very easy to project with this horn as well and it slots easily in the upper register. Another big plus is the fact that you can go from having a classical, dark, sound to having an edgy, jazzy sound with a simple change of mouthpiece (although it's definitely more suited for jazz). Love the horn and i'd recommend this to anybody who feels like they might be playing through college for a good few years.

            Best trumpet

            By Steven-aLIlF

            from New Jersey

            Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

            I tried out maybe thirty trumpets in a trumpet store and I found that this was definitely the best one. Personally, I found the 43 bell better sounding than the 37 but thats all a matter of opinion. Bach stradavarius are the best trumpets out there!

            Great Horn

            By I-Love-Strads

            from SPF, New Jersey

            Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

            I recently purchased this horn and liked it's sound. I'm a 1st trumpet in a Group 6A marching band and have no trouble projecting with no wasting to much air. I would not recommend using a Kelly 5c or 7c with this as the sound is not to great with those mouthpieces, overall this is a much better upgrade from my King 600.

            Great Sounding Horn

            Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

            I recently purchased a Bach Stradivarius LR180S-43. Ever since I recieved it I've been playing non-stop. This horn has a great sound and projection and has little backpressure. It is an awsome horn and I reccomend it for anyone who is seriously considering playing throughout college.

            16 year old horn

            Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

            I've had one of these since 1990, and I have to say it plays, feels, and sounds just as good today as it did when it was new. The finish is outstanding and is still wonderfully brilliant. Everything about this horn is first rate.

            I recently purchased the Bach Strad LR180. I love the centered tone and projection this horn has. The ease of playing is excellent as well.

            i've had the bach stradivarius model 43 for just about five years now, and the best thing of all about this horn is the quality of the rich bright sound it produces, and the amount of upgrades you can put on this horn.
