Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both an accomplished musician and a talented 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 LR180 series feature lightweight bodies with standard weight one-piece hand-hammered professional bells and reversed #25LR leadpipes. This unique construction offers the quick response of a lightweight model with less resistance from the reverse leadpipe and the projection of a standard weight #43 bell. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. The LR18043 with a .459" medium-large bore gives a player a more open feel with slightly more control and a vivid response resulting in an instrument that is well suited for all types of music.
