    Yeah I agree the US is always on top, though Yamaha puts up a good fight, but its to mechanized in manufacturing, the US, at least bach does, still uses some hand making process. and yes I bought the baby for 1100 still has 100% silver on it, and only a few dings, if you hold it at the right angle youll see a few very small little indentions on the bell from where I had put it down on my trumpet stand, and the plastic top of the stand taped it. but yeah she is great:play:

    wow a marching trumpet, you got lucky. I got a an early 70s strad perfect silver and we payed 1800 (originally 2400, director pulled some strings), plays excellent, one of the best horns I ever picked up. But it doesn't have a third valve water key, but I tend to empty that slide anyway, and it tends to fill up?? I don't get it.

    Also that add is pretty funny, glad this thread was brought up from the depths of TM.

    Naaaah,
    never. It doesn't have a water key on the third valve and sounds like crap when you suck on it like the dude in the ad.

    If the guy had a pro horn in his hands, the comments would have been different.

    Sofus,
    the einhorn plays itself.

    I have had enough miserable Bachs in my hands (some great ones too), but never a bad B&S. If an American company produces crap, then I don't care. Quality has nothing to do with borders. It has to do with attitudes and bean counters.
