The 18043 Stradivarius is a professional-level trumpet that delivers top-shelf performance. Its yellow brass, standard-construction #25 leadpipe and D-style radius main tuning slide offer just enough breath resistance to center your tone, while its .459-inch, medium-large bore ensures a focused sound that's brimming with color. This horn's rugged Monel valves offer smooth, quick action for playability that's second to none, while safeguarding against performance-wrecking air leaks. The 18043's first valve thumb saddle facilitates easy intonation adjustments, while its third valve sports a fixed ring with an adjustable slide rod stop.

1-piece hand-hammered bell

The Bach 18043 Stradivarius is equipped with a 1-piece, 4.8-inch bell with a #43 taper. Constructed from hand-hammered yellow brass, this bell produces a brighter sound than a standard #37 taper, that's also broader and more open. The 18043 features a clear lacquer finish, which brings a delicate warmth to your overall sound and gives the trumpet a shiny, gleaming appearance. The 18043 offers cannon-like projection — it delivers an amazing, character-filled sound that's well suited for jazz.

Building high-quality trumpets for more than a century

Back in 1918, Austrian-born trumpeter Vincent Bach began making mouthpieces. By 1924, he was employing his expertise as a musician and an engineer to craft high-quality brass instruments. Today, the Vincent Bach Corporation is headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana, and they produce a complete line of American-built student, intermediate, and professional trumpets that reflect the same level of tone and playability. Bach trumpets are handcrafted using top-shelf brass to deliver the utmost in durability and performance, with a signature sound that's preferred by professionals worldwide. The brass aficionados here at Sweetwater stand by Bach trumpets — they're world class all the way.
