Brand NEW! Bach Stradivarius C180SL229PC Philadelphia C Trumpet
Top Bach C with the bold, powerful sound of a #229 standard weight bell.
The Bach Philadelphia C Trumpets are modeled after the trumpets sold to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra over 50 years ago, but have a standard weight bell that creates a darker, richer tone. The leadpipe is based on an original Vincent Bach design from 1947 and feature a .462-inch bore. A yellow brass body and #229 bell has a classic French bead flat rim which provides outstanding projection and tone. The ‘Philly C’ trumpet also features a 1st valve thumb ring for easier tuning adjustment, and narrower bell to valve casing and valve casing to leadpipe braces for improved resonance.
