      Excellent lead trumpet for jazz bands.

      The LT180S43 combines the popular design of the Stradivarius Series with the #43 taper bell that has a slower taper to produce a brighter sound that is more brilliant and open than the standard #37 taper. The LT180S43 then uses the #43 taper with a lightweight bell and combines that with a lightweight body design to create a trumpet that produces freer vibrations, making the instrument respond more freely, especially in the upper register. This combination offers the player an instrument that is well suited for use in jazz when a player is spending a long time in the upper register and needs to produce a slightly brighter sound without the additional work

      Bright and Responsive but...

      By The Trumpet Man


      Comments about Bach LT180S43 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

      This trumpet is the bright side and is very responsive. I already loved. I bought it used but it looks just like new! Even the case smell like new. This makes a very good deal. But long story short, be aware that all Stradivarious trumpets comes from the factory cover inside and out with a thin layer of microscopic black dust.This dust will stuck the main tuning slide and slow down pistons. The only way to remove it is using a brush or a piece of cloth. A bubble bath of water and soap will not be enough to remove it. You need to brush it out. Also do this to the threads of the piston receivers. Good luck and enjoy making music.
