Before we get to the tech specs, sometimes it's important to recognize when a horn is a cut above. For generations, the Bach 37 has been the choice of players in every style of music. However, this Bach 37 has a special, innate character that makes it rise above the others of it's ilk. Maybe the folks who built this horn had an extra bowl of Wheaties or maybe the coffee was particularly strong that day, but with the combination of incredible valve compression, steel bead, classic Bach sound and feel, while also being nice and open in the extremes of the register...well what I'm saying is that it's a spectacular horn.
Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer to create brass instruments of unequalled tonal quality. Often copied but never duplicated, Bach Stradivarius instruments today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide. The Bach 180 series Bb trumpets are the most versatile available offering more options that meet the demanding needs of today's most discriminating players.
The Bach 180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The 18037 features a #37 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a warm sound with great projection allowing this instrument to work well in multiple musical settings—from jazz to concert or solo playing. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. 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.
