The Bach LT180S77 Stradivarius New York #7 Series Bb Trumpet is the replacement for the popular limited edition 197 Stradivarius. This series features the same classic #7 taper lightweight bell, combined with a #7 standard construction leadpipe.

The Bach LT180S77 Stradivarius New York #7 Series Bb Trumpet includes a case and mouthpiece and is available in silver (LT180S77) finish.

The Bach #7 bell, developed by Vincent Bach during the 1920's, first appeared in 1929. This bell is constructed in one piece from lightweight yellow brass, with the current version featuring a classic French-bead flat rim. The instrument also features a .462" bore, #7 leadpipe, vintage '30's style mouthpiece receiver, first and third slide finger rings, single brace tuning slide, and third slide stop assembly. 
Historically speaking 
Historical records show that the first production instrument with a #7 bell was a Stradivarius trumpet (#1249) made February 26, 1929. A few horns with earlier serial numbers were also retrofitted with the #7 bell. Regular production of the #7 bell started in January 1930. Many influential players 
Examination of shop cards for these instruments show that influential players of the day purchased these instruments, including Merle Evans (on a cornet), George Mager, Leona May Smith, Dr. Charles Colin, Henry Busse, and the Juilliard Graduate School (all trumpets).
