Bach Stradivarius 190S37 IN STOCK

This is the 19037 Stradivarius 50th Anniversary Model, a combined homage and celebration of the original Stradivarius models that rolled off the line in 1965. Bach has taken one of the most popular trumpet designs ever and improved upon it. The 19037 Stradivarius features a .459-inch medium-large bore combined with a one-piece hand hammered yellow brass bell with the popular #37 taper and side seam. This trumpet also features two-piece valve casing with nickel balusters and wide sculpted bracing that gives this trumpet improved resonance and tonal core that surpasses the traditional 18037 model.

This resonance, combined with improved flexibility, allows the player to play with a greater presence without working harder. Characteristic of the traditional Stradivarius trumpet, the 19037 series can perform in any situation from classical to jazz.
