Bach 180S-72 Stradivarius Series Bb TrumpetThe popular design of the Stradivarius Series is combined with the #72 taper bell that has a fast taper to produce a warmer sound that is less resistant than the standard #37 taper. This trumpet is well suited for solo or orchestral work.

I got my first Bach 180-72 as a senior in high school. It was the Mt. Vernon model-non silver plated. I really liked it. I played it until 2004 when I decided to ram the 72 up. I ordered a custom one from the Bach custom shop. It was standard weight, large bore, #7 lead pipe which blows darker and fuller, #72 heavy gold brass bell, and silver plated. It blows very dark, rich and full in sound. It is perfect for lead work. It is a keeper. I notice WWBW carries one in stock now.
The Bach 72 Bell produces a rich, dark, powerful, resonant sound and has a more open and flexible tone placement compared to the 25,37,and 43 bell flares. For players who play mouthpieces such as a 7C, 3C or 1C or shallower and who possess a naturally bright sound, but want a darker tone, the 72 is a super choice.
Paired with the optional #43 leadpipe, a Bach 72 is free, open, flexible and well balanced in standard, lightweight, heavy weight and Sterling Silver Plus bells.
The Sterling Silver Plus bell will give a player incredible power and sound projection but also requires slightly more effort than standard and lightweight models. It is great for powerful passages and symphonic work where it will cut right through the orchestra, but it is not as agile for quick virtuoso concerti and solo playing.
For all around work, the standard weight models might be a better choice for all around playing.
Lightweight models are brighter sounding, very responsive and lively sounding, but are also very delicate and highly prone to damage. They must be handled with great care to avoid accidental damage due to the very thin metal and light construction.
I bought this trumpet during my senior year in highschool and I decided to go with the 180s 72 bell with a reversed lead pipe, mostly because I wanted a heavy weight sound for classical, but also the ability to blow the roof off when I play lead in Jazz. So in the 180s I found an extremely versatile insturment. Paired with a large cup/diameter mouthpioece, its calm and full, paired with a shallow/lead piece it turns into a lead monster with a tone that definately cuts through the mix. I also have heavyweight valve caps I use in jazz to keep the tone in check, and in classical to round out the sound even more.
I love this horn so much! Better that any other horn I've played.
At first I was scared of the price but now that I own one, it is well worth it. The sound is crisp and clear and well, you get what you pay for.
