This professional line Bach Stradivarius Model 72* lightweight silver trumpet is in pristine condition. It has just come back from the shop where it was completely polished. It has 99% of the original silver plating. The serial number makes it a vintage 1991-1992 trumpet. The engraving is still nice and clean; it reads “Stradivarius Model 72 Vincent Bach Elkhart, Ind. U.S.A.” There is also a small “R” trademark sign next to “Vincent’ and there is a small star beneath the engraved words. It has “43” engraved on the mouthpiece receiver. This trumpet comes in the original “Bach The Selmer Company” case which is in good condition. No mouthpiece is included. This instrument has the trademark Bach overtones, warm round sound and excellent projection. The valves have incredible action. It is a very flexible horn from top to bottom. You can get a ton of power in the low end all the way to a nice beautiful delicate sound in the upper register. This is a true players horn.
