OVERVIEW

Ultimate Bach craftsmanship!

The Bach AC190 Stradivarius Artisan Series C Trumpet offers the professional level performer an instrument with a response and tone worthy of the master Artisan Vincent Bach. The AC190 Artisan features a .462-inch bore plus a 4-13/16-inch one-piece hand-hammered bell with a flat rim and special acoustic treatment for a pure, responsive tone. The AC190 also features two sets of valve guides--one set of brass and one set of plastic for custom performance. The Bach AC190 Stradivarius Artisan Series C Trumpet includes a deluxe double case and is available in lacquer (AC190) or silver (AC190S) finish. Mouthpiece sold separately.
Skillfully handcrafted, Artisan culminates in a unique blend of classic design, elegant styling, and the signature Bach sound. Over a year in the making, development of The Artisan Collection with contributions to acoustic design and testing was aided by long-time Bach artists Michael Sachs, principal trumpet, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Phil Smith, principal trumpet, New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The Artisan Collection enhances the entire line of Bach Stradivarius by offering today's players the look, feel and signature Bach sound of vintage Bach designs. Staying true to key elements of Vincent Bach's original designs was critical in the development of this new collection to allow the player to discover the Artisan within.

Comments about Bach AC190 Stradivarius Artisan Series C Trumpet:

This is a spectacular horn. The sound is to die for. Intonation is better than Bach 229. Definitely comparable to Yamaha Artist Chicago model which is $1000 more. I made a video review of everything that is included. Its worth a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJUrWKB5OYE

Great C trumpet for any use.

Comments about Bach AC190 Stradivarius Artisan Series C Trumpet:

This is really a phenomenal C trumpet. I tried out several C trumpets and gave an long look at the Philly and Chicago models- the Philly sounded a little bland to me but I almost got the Chicago. However, the Artisan's sound profile was more versatile to my ear, with stronger middle and low overtones, as opposed to the more brilliant highs of the Chicago. The Artisan also was able to be louder without losing the core of the sound, which I felt was a slight problem on the Chicago. The Artisan has a very resonant, powerful, and adaptable sound. Articulations sound very defined up front, and make for very secure entrances. It is clear at low dynamics and brilliant and strong at high volume. Intonation is overall good, but fourth space Eb should certainly still be fingered with 2 & 3. The low register really barks and retains the tone quality of the midrange down much further than one expects. It is not extremely open, but if you don't try to force huge amounts of air through it, the resistance feels just right, giving a sense of security. It projects insanely, and sounds even better out front than it does to you behind the bell. The split ring also makes it very comfortable to hold, and the brass valve guides included with it give great tactile response for the valve action. I also looked extensively at the Yamaha Chicago C. It has a slightly different (not necessarily better) sound to my ear, and is a little more open and easy to play, along with improved intonation. However, these differences are subtle, and certainly not worth the added $1000 to me. It really gets down to the Artisan feeling like a C, where the Yamaha feels much closer to a Bb. Different people look for different feels in a C, so I suspect most people will be drawn to one over the other.
