    Hey, I was just told of a great rumor running around that back in the day we took a bunch of Strad parts from Allied Supply and started building and selling our own counterfeit Bach Strads. While it is 100% false, I would love to know where this came from. Has anyone else heard this tall tale?

    HI Brent ,

    my son has done very well playing your horns , and he is very proud of his Artist Sterling Trumpet 1950's ??, Schilke 12 mp., we have plans to get a new Eterna Sterling in the near future .
    Daniel was practicing on his Capri last night , what a beautiful sound , his ability to hear the differences in the cornets has really improved . mp,, shilke 8e2,,getzen deluxe ML came with the 80 power bore.
    Our Copra Temp Cornet and the Artist Trumpet both have bottom sprung valves and the case style are the same , so I am wondering when did Getzen change from bottom springs to top springs ?
    The 80 Power Bore and Super Deluxe have top springs.
    Thank You !

    Lovevixen555 was a real nut. Figures (s)he would come back to haunt us. But I'm not too sure if LV is the source of this rumor. A quick google search proved that they were a little active on trumpet herald as well, and let's face it nobody has time or patience to read through ever single one of 633 abnormally long and un-formatted posts. The rumor definitely started somewhere, but I don't think Lovevixen555 started it.

    He definitely repeated it:

    "I have heard stories that when Conn bought Bach that they only took the best pieces of harware and left almost all of the part's behind and all of the mandrells that they where not interested in. Allied Supply bought all the parts they left behind. People have mentioned how their Bach Strad was built for them by buddies that worked at Getzen or Allied Supply with part's that they had purchased fromt he OEM when they sold to Conn."

    I'll have to research that. It shouldn't be hard for me to find. I don't read much there, or post.
