The Bach Stradivarius 189S Eb/D Trumpet has a vivid yet broad tone well suited for symphonic and solo repertoire. The 4-13/16″ long one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass #239 bell provides a light, vibrant sound while the reverse tuning #25R leadpipe and .459″ bore has an open feel. The 1st slide thumb saddle makes for easy intonation adjustments while the Monel pistons provide smooth quick action. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. The 189 has an extra set of slides for the key of D making the Bach Stradivarius 189 Eb/D Trumpet a very versatile instrument.

The horn has a corporation bell and is in excellent condition with a couple of tiny dings which you can hardly see. The valve compression is excellent. Serial Number 142575 which dates it to mid to late 70’s, it’s in remarkable condition for it’s age. It has had a valve alignment by Dr Valve who also redid the bracing, this work was play tested by John Hagstrom of Chicago Symphony Orchestra and adjusted accordingly.

The horn was recently cleaned and serviced, so is ready to play.

I am asking £1950 plus UK shipping at £29.60 Royal Mail Special Delivery, it’s fast, reliable and fully insured. Contact me for international shipping rates.

I may consider a trade, particularly for a Phat Freddie or Phat Boy.
