Bach Trumpets Chicago C Trumpet

 

C180SL229CC "Chicago" C
In April of 1955, Vincent Bach completed and delivered six C trumpets to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Four were selected by individual members of the trumpet section and purchased by the Orchestra. The remaining two were sold to a music store for individual customers.

Now, almost fifty years later, these trumpets are still revered, still in use, and still the property of the Chicago Symphony. Each instrument is assigned to a specific section member.

Today, however, other trumpet players are in for a treat, as Conn-Selmer has introduced the 'new' Bach Stradivarius "Chicago" C trumpet, an instrument closely based on these original designs. The model (specifically model C180SL229CC) features a #229 bell and a #25 leadpipe, but this instrument design is faithful to the original blueprints in many other details, as well.

Based on Vincent Bach's 1955 "C" trumpet designs, this new instrument features:

Large-bore (.462") for the power needed in an orchestral section
#229 lightweight yellowbrass one-piece hand-hammered bell with classis French bead flat rim
Flat brass rim wire soldered in bell
Special #25 leadpipe based on 1947 design
Widefoot bell to leadpipe braces
Narrower braces at bell to valve casing and valve casing to leadpipe
Thumb ring on first valve
Narrow tuning slide....1947 design
Single brace on tunign slide
Bead rings on all slides
Hexagon shaped pull knobs
Special Edition double trumpet case
Available in silver plate only
