    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.

        The best, well-rounded trumpet that IS worth your money

        By belltrumpetplayer19

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

        I have been playing on the Bach Strad for more than 8 years. It is one of the best trumpets you CAN afford, but CANNOT afford to refuse buying one.

        Why?:

        1. It looks AWESOME! When I got it, it was literally shining. Just a beautiful sight. Looks much better in person than on a computer screen.

        2. Everything that Bach made on this horn is 99.9999999999(etc, etc, etc)% perfect. ALL parts of the horn are evenly balanced so you can make a million dollar sound.

        3. Tone and pitch is extremely easy to adjust. The trumpet WILL adjust to YOUR playing needs and expectations.

        4. Assuming that you have an embouchure and physique to play the trumpet really well, the Bach Stradivarius will sound the same EVERYTIME you play it. Even if you change mouthpieces, still the same.

        5. Response is phenomenal. For every range possible and every note possible.

        I can assure you that 70% of all trumpet players in my university are playing on a Bach Strad. And maybe in your local college/university too. The pros listed above makes this trumpet extremely diverse, so you can play it over a variety of styles. Satisfaction is guaranteed and this could be the last trumpet you might ever buy again. You can either get this trumpet and be better than how you sounded yesterday, or stay safe, but at the bottom end of the trumpet section.

        Too good to be true? Try it out yourself. That's all I can say.

        Great Horn

        By Mark-Eqkqf

        from Pittsburgh, PA

        Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

        I have played this horn for over 2 years and find it to be a delight to play. Extremely good projection and fast action. It is a good all around trumpet.

        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.

        from Huntington

        Comments about Bach LR180S-43 Stradivarius Professional Bb Trumpet:

        This horn is the best I have played. The high restister is just as good as the low. This is my fav. horn out of all the Bach trumpets, and a few others. It plays easy, with a very good tone.

        from Derry, NH

        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

        By HornGuy

        from Lansdale, PA

        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.
