New York Bach Strad-SUPER Trumpet | eBay
-funeral music- The only problem is despite the hybrid bell, the horn is gorgeous.
To each his own. It could actually be quite good. Not $1,550 good enough for me though.
Not even close to $1000. They took away the best part!
Actually, the bell is probably the best (and most expensive) part of that whole horn. Bach valves are OK but not state of the art smooth. The yellow brass leadpipes are subject to red rot, as is the tuning slide. More perfect would have been a Schilke or Getzen valve group with that bell.
That horn would be awesome with my 1950 New York Bach Mercury 1-pc bell!
It's a shame he wants so much for it!
NOOO! Dont ruin your horn too!
The Strad body would be an upgrade from a Mercury body!
I might be able to get more for the mercury with a Olds Super Bell than I could with the Bach one!
Actually, to me, that sounds like a great idea. The bell on the Super is fantastic, it really makes the horn. What bell Bach was it beforehand?
That's an interesting trumpet. If the original bell was destroyed, I'd say they did the best they could to repair it with some "class". A NOS Bach New York bell would have been better, but where are you going to find one of those?
