Famous musicians such as Harry Glantz, George Mager, F. Olds, Elden Benge, and mouthpiece maker Frank Zottola at one time owned one of these Bach models.
The Selmer Company pays tribute to this popular model by using it as the basis for its limited edition Vintage Bach Stradivarius trumpet. In recreating the 1930's look, the Vintage will incorporate hex-style slide pull knobs and wider bracing than found on today's standard models. A longer mouthpiece receiver embraces the Bach Mt.
A handsome silver-plated finish with gold-plated trim and distinctive engraving will protect and adorn the instrument. Like all Bach Stradivarius trumpets the Vintage will feature on-piece bell construction. Hand hammering converts sheets of special brass into trumpet bells. Several times throughout the manufacturing process the bells are annealed in high temperature ovens to soften the metal and relieve stress.
During the spinning state a piece of wire is place din to the bell rim. Lead soldering of the bell rim wire adds clarity to and solidifies the sound.
Although a #6 bell might sound slightly brighter than a #37 due to the shape of the flare, use of a gold brass bell in the Vintage eliminates that edge. Gold brass contains a higher copper content than standard yellow brass, making the bell softer and dampening vibrations for a warmer tone quality. Medium-large bore, the Vintage will be comfortable to play and focus. Incorporation the #6 lead pipe, which generally feels slightly more restrictive than the standard #25 lead pipe that most of today's musicians are used to, recreates the sound and feel of a popular 1930-era Bach trumpet. Utilizing a lightweight body and bell enhances the instrument's quick response.
