I've owned my LT180S-72 since 2002. It's been the best sounding horn I've owned. It has a nice dark sound in the lower register. And can really brighten up in the upper register. Plays more open than the other bachs (37&43 bells). Due to the 25-0 leadpipe. Which is more open feel... For about a year now I switched to a yamaha 8310Z. Found I get same results with less effort. Comes in handy when you have a long nights. And long weekends... With this said. I still wouldn't part ways with my Strad. It has a nice core sound. I can't replicate on other horns.
I always thought the phrase "The right trumpet will find you" was just a corny expression, until I tried this horn...
The model I have is the LT180S-72, but with a 43 leadpipe. There is just something so special and amazing about this unique combination that suits me perfectly. The 72 bell flare produces a sound that is huge, fat, and broad with an open blow. The lightweight metal makes for a horn with superb response and a sound that really SIZZLES like no other, especially in the upper register. The 43 leadpipe adds a lot of overtones to the sound making it perfect for lead playing, and it blows a lot more open than a standard 25 leadpipe.
Since I want to be a lead player primarily, this is the perfect horn for the way I play. If you're a lead player that uses a lot of air and strives for a big, fat, bright sound, then chances are you will love this horn. However... if you are the type of player that likes the horn to do most of the work and strive for that laserbeam, Bill Chase sound, then you probably won't be able to utilize the potential of this beast... In that case, go buy yourself a Yamaha Bobby Shew or a medium-bore Schilke. :D
The Bach 72* (lightweight) is a great horn for the professional trumpeter. Coupled with the optional #43 leadpipe, is extremely responsive, nice and open upstairs, has a very full shimmering tone that fills out any ensemble.
I've used mine in musicals, symphony concerts, Sunday services, brass ensembles, and lessons. Its one of Bach's best Bb models and well worth the price. When trying out new Bb's this is one that is well worth being on your list.
For decades, the Bach Stradivarius trumpet has been the most referenced horn in the world. Players either love the horn or hate it. I've cherished mine since 1995.
I also own a Yamaha Bobby Shew 8310ZS and a Schilke B3B and genuinely enjoy playing them both. Having attended NAMM shows for over 20 years, I've probably played every pro horn on the market multiple times. Many have wonderful qualities, but none have the remarkable bell-like resonance and projection of a Strad -- especially with the 72 bell.
In my opinion, every aspiring player should give this horn a try, at least for a couple of weeks. Obviously, no one brand or style of trumpet will suite every player's needs or preferences. Also, as musicians, our tastes often change over time.
However, during my life-long horn quest as a professional musician, to date, I have not found another trumpet that can match the presence of a Bach Stradivarius. I frequently recommend this horn to my students without reservation.
