A Piccolo Trumpet with the Definitive Bach Sound

Serious orchestral trumpeters looking for the ultimate piccolo trumpet will find everything they’re looking for in the Bach Artisan AP190S. Its .450-inch bore and one-piece flat rim bell offer up a focused airstream that elicits a beautiful, orchestral sound that pro players crave in a piccolo trumpet. Other design elements like the 2-piece valve casings and nickel balusters lend to this trumpet’s overall tone and response. Sweetwater trumpeters also appreciate the high level of customization this piccolo trumpet offers. The AP190S comes with two sets of leadpipes in both Bb and A, each with trumpet and cornet mouthpiece receivers. It also comes with two sets of plastic and brass valve guides that let you change up the instrument’s feel and response. These extras let you adapt the AP190S to your specific preferences and playing situation. Top it off with a silver-plated finish that adds an extra sheen of brilliance, and the AP190S is a high-performing piccolo trumpet that deserves your attention.

The AP190S is a player’s horn built to satisfy the needs of top-level orchestral musicians. For ultimate customization, this piccolo trumpet comes with four leadpipes: two with trumpet shank and two with cornet shank receivers, each set covering the keys of Bb and A. This allows you to pick and choose your sound based on the needs of your specific situation. The AP190S also includes Monel pistons with two sets of valve guides — one brass and one plastic — offering you the choice in how your instrument responds and feels. Other Artisan-level details hearken back to the glory days of Vincent Bach himself, such as the 2-piece valve casings, nickel balusters, and enhanced radius ferrules. Every piece comes together to create this superb piccolo trumpet.

One-piece, hand-hammered bell

All Artisan trumpets are lovingly created by elite craftspeople at the Bach factory in Elkhart, Indiana. The AP190S comes with a 4-inch flat rim bell that’s undergone a special acoustical treatment process that honors Bach’s rich history. The bell is forged from a single sheet of brass, then hand-hammered to perfection to enhance its durability and resonance. The result is a bell that delivers an ultra-pure sound with a clear, focused core and a broad spectrum of tonal colors. The silver-plating adds to this piccolo trumpet’s brilliance, creating the signature Bach Stradivarius sound. Lastly, the bell brandishes a head-turning artistic engraving worthy of the Artisan name.

Bach: the professional choice

Often copied but never truly imitated, Bach trombones are the choice of players worldwide. Vincent Bach founded Bach brass in 1918 after a mouthpiece repair went wrong. By 1928, Bach introduced trombones into his lineup. Bach’s famous trombone designs stemmed from a combination of his musical know-how and engineering talent. He successfully identified what he needed from a trombone and set about creating an instrument that could solve the unique issues experienced by trombone players — and he never looked back. More than a century later, Bach instruments are proudly crafted in Elkhart, Indiana, to the same lofty standards as those from the ’20s and ’30s.
