Historic design that started it all.
Bach Stradivarius Chicago C Trumpets are modeled after the trumpets sold to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra over 50 years ago that are still being used today.
Here's how the story goes: In April of 1955, Vincent Bach completed and delivered six C trumpets to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Four were selected by individual members of the trumpet section and purchased by the Orchestra. The remaining two were sold to a music store for individual customers. Now, almost fifty years later, these trumpets are still revered, still in use, and still the property of the Chicago Symphony. Each instrument is assigned to a specific section member.
Today, however, other trumpet players are in for a treat, as Conn-Selmer has introduced the 'new' Bach Stradivarius "Chicago" C trumpet, an instrument closely based on these original designs. These trumpets feature a .462-inch bore and special mouthpipe based on Vincent Bach's original design plus a yellow brass body with a lightweight #229 bell with a classic French bead flat rim for outstanding projection and tone. This trumpet also features a 1st valve thumb ring for easier tuning adjustment and narrower bell to valve casing and valve casing to mouthpipe braces for improved resonance.
The Chicago C, where it begins and ends. Own yours at last.
