    I would assume yes, definitely, but that is probably left to somebody in your country to confirm (I presume the USA).

    Hello, you got 3 responses which don't conflict, and seem to confirm your logic. Do you really feel unhelped?

    The going rate in the USA seems to be a little more than $2600
    BACH STRAD TRUMPET 37 BELL SILVER 180S37 at MusiciansBuy!
    Bach Stradivarius Bb Trumpet - Silver Plating
    Bach Stradivarius 18037 Bb Trumpet at Thompson Music (a little less than $2600)
    etc.

    not unhelped. thx for that and all the reponses. ideally i'd like to find a dealer with every different model of strad and a/b them find out which i like most. most dealers around here don't have any.

    Ah - that's a different question! When I bought my Strad I tried out a 37, 43G and 72 and ended up picking the 43G. A couple of years later I went back and tried the 37 and 72 again and felt I should have picked the 72 perhaps. For years before I got my 43G I was sure I was going to get a 37 because that had been the only one I'd ever tried (though had known that model since the early 1990's). The point I am getting to is that having longer time to try models out, including times when you're feeling a bit different, is a good thing if you can manage it.

    I don't know where "around here" is but another thread I started some weeks ago asking which stores have good ranges of instruments to try out resulted in a few suggestions which you just might live near, if you are in U.S.A. (though if you actually live in Mexico, one suggestion is in Austin, Texas, and that might be a fairly convenient spin up Route 35 from Nuevo Laredo) :

    You could try calling your local bigger music shop (who might not have many Bach horns) and asking them who might have more - then ask them the same etc.

    That's a decent price. Depending on your locale, you could check with other players that own what you're looking for and sit-in with them. You certainly want to try the horn before you purchase, I would think.
