This silver Bach Stradivarius Model 37 trumpet with a ML Bore (.459) has been completely overhauled and re-silver plated. It is absolutely pristine and beautiful. The serial number makes it a vintage 1988-1989. The engraving on the bell is still crisp and reads “Stradivarius Model 37 Vincent Bach Elkhart, Ind. U.S.A.” The first valve tuning slide has two very small surface imperfections. The horn comes in a replacement Bach case which is still in good condition. No mouthpiece is included. Bach’s have a heavy wall that gives them a big dark sound and this particular Bach epitomizes that iconic sound. This Bach plays wonderfully.
