In 1965, the manufacturing of Bach Stradivarius trumpets was moved from Mount Vernon New York to Elkhart Indiana marking a new era in Vincent Bach history. The year 2015 marks fifty years of Bach Stradivarius manufacturing in Elkhart. In celebration of the 50th anniversary and in carrying on the legacy and vision of the master craftsman, the makers of today’s Bach Stradivarius proudly introduce the Bach Stradivarius 190S37 professional Bb trumpet.
Using construction techniques from 1965, we combined the highest quality USA made materials, traditional hand-crafted processes, and vintage design elements to create a new model that has an amazing response and flexibility, a larger tonal core, superb resonance, and easy performance in all registers – all wrapped in the signature Bach sound!
Bach Stradivarius trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world.

The combination of two-piece valve construction, nickel silver outer slides, brass valve guides, and a steel bell wire provides a broad sound with a quick response and great feedback to the player.
