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.
