The Bach 180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The 18043 features a #43 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a warm sound with slightly more control and with great projection allowing this instrument to work well in multiple musical settings—from jazz to concert or solo playing. The leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. The raw brass finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound and offers slightly more projection. These features combined with a .459" medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all types of music.
This trumpet has undergone a full service here in the shop and looks as clean and clear as it plays. No evidence of red rot. Silver plating is in 90% condition. There is significant plating wear near the valves, but all is cosmetic. We've replaced the leather handle on the case, but have otherwise left it in it's original condition.
