OVERVIEW

The most popular Bach Stradivarius pro trumpet design.

The Bach Stradivarius 180S37 Silver Professional Bb Trumpet offers depth and color of sound, coupled with the even intonation and response a professional player needs. Good for all-around playing, this Bach 180 Strad Pro Trumpet features a standard weight body and #37 bell, plus a standard construction #25 mouthpipe in silver finish. The most popular Bach Stradivarius trumpet available today is the 180S37 with a yellow brass bell. This trumpet is also available with a 1st valve trigger (180S37T) or 1st and 3rd valve triggers (180S37W55), or with a gold brass bell (180S37G). The Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Silver Professional Bb Trumpet includes a case and mouthpiece.

The 180S-37 features a #37 bell with a medium-fast taper to produce a sound that has a brilliant sound with a warm quality that allows this instrument to work well in multiple musical settingsā€from jazz to concert or solo playing. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. These features combined with a .459-inch medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound while not over-extending the endurance level of the player. The Monel valve material allows the pistons to be machined to a consistent diameter throughout the entire length of the valve to produce a more efficient "seal" between the piston and the interior wall of the valve casing. The result is less air leakage that could cause performance problems.

  • Key: Bb
  • Bore: 459-inch
  • Leadpipe: #25 Standard Taper
  • Leadpipe Material: Yellow Brass
  • Bell: 4.8-inch One-Piece #37 Taper

There are a lot of great trumpets out there but when it comes right down to it-- the 37 bell ML Bach Strad. is hard to beat. After decades this is still the trumpet to which everything else is compared. My new post-strike Bach plays great and the workmanship is as good or better than ever. There is just something about the 37 bell that no other maker has been able to duplicate and goodness knows many have tried. Some trumpets may play brighter or darker or hit the high notes a little easier but this is still the trumpet to have. I've owned and played any number trumpets including the most expensive "boutique" trumpets and many of them have been great trumpets, don't get me wrong-- but I've always gone back to the ML bore 37 yellow brass Bach Strad!

I have had this Bach for 3 years and it has done the job. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the support for the extreme upper register nor does it have the tolerance for free blowing. However, this instrument is very well made and it's intonation is absolutely perfect. When it comes down to price, this instrument is way over priced. It's worth the quality, but if you are paying this price for it, might as well get the Bach 180s43 or a Getzen Custom Series.

Dosen't get any better than a Bach

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

I've owned many horns in my playing lifetime......you name it and I've played it. I have owned a Bach Strad "Big Apple" model 37 now for about 5 years and it is my "go to" horn for everything from classical to jazz and I am in agreement with all others that say it is the sound that separates this horn from all others. The only other horn I have owned that comes close to the Bach was a LeBlanc Sonic, which I unfortunately sold. The horn is a little tight on top, but I have found intense practice usually solves that problem. I am not a lead player, so those big, fat stratospheric notes are not an issue with me. If this horn was a watch, it would be a Rolex.

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

I have never heard a trumpet play this good until I received mine. This trumpet is everything a great player is looking for and it plays so beautifully. I highly suggest this if you are torn between brands of trumpets. Bach has definitively impressed, and satisfied me!

Still an Industry Standard

By

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

Although they have made some of the parts cheaper and less sturdy than the older ones, this is still the industry standard and the quality control is pretty consistent (although a pro would still test multiple ones to get the very best sound). To be honest though, I have tested some Yamahas that play just as well and cost a bit less. Still, the 37ML will do what most players need it to do.

The essential trumpet.

By

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

If you are serious about playing the trumpet, then this is the horn to buy. I have been playing since I was 11 years old, and now I am a 3rd-year Music Education major. This is the model that everyone in my trumpet studio is required to own. The sound is excellent in low, middle, and high registers. When it is played correctly, the tone is open and pure - the kind of tone every trumpet player should have. If you are looking for a horn to use for the rest of your life, whether it be for a hobby or a career, this is the one for you.

Best Horn I Have Ever Played

By 

from Merrimack, NH

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

I have been playing trumpet since the 7th grade. I am now considered of legal retirement age, so have been playling for quite some time. I have owned about four trumpets (each one a different brand) but have tried out many other brands over the years. I have read some reviews which say that the Bach Strads are "inconsistent" and that the "quality" is not what it used to be. Based on my own Model 180S37, I would strongly disagree. This horn is the easiest one for me to play and I do sound better playing it than any other horn I have ever used at any price. I give it five stars in every possible category and would recommend it highly. As with any instrument, you want to play one first. If you do, you will see what I mean.

EPIC

By

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

I have been playing on a Bach 180s37 Stradivarius trumpet since my freshmen year of high school. This horn survived four intense years of high school marching band, jazz band, concert band, and pit orchestra. I am now a freshmen trumpet player in the Purdue University "All-American" Marching Band, as well as one of Purdue's Jazz Bands. My bach strad still performs as well as the first day I oiled it's valves. The bach strad can deliver a wall of sound from the middle of Ross-Ade Stadium, to a thick, lush sound in Orchestra. I NEVER have problems with "sticky valves" or slides. Whenever I go in for a music audition, I always know that my bach strad will be as responsive and melodious as I want it to be. Kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for!

Phenomenal!

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

I've had my Model 37 Strad. for about 10 years now, and I can't give it enough praise. Wonderful sound, great quality, easy playing in the high register, and quick valve response are what I now expect from every high-level trumpet. The Strad. is definitely one of the best purchases I have ever made. I expect many more years of use out of my baby, and I cannot wait to play it again!

inconsistent

Comments about Bach 180S37 Stradivarius Series Bb Trumpet:

the smart buyer should be warned that as with most horns, no two are alike. I played a Bach 37 that was fantastic, and then I happened to play two that were average at best.
