Description: Trumpet - Bach 229/25HCL trumpet
This instrument is a L bore Vintage Bach Stradivarious C trumpet made in Elkhart, Indiana, with a 229 bell and 25H leadpipe. The serial number is 71,038. It has a Bob Reeves Patented valve alignment and is in silver finish.
This trumpet has great intonation and response and a very warm and scintillating tone quality.
There is quite a bit of wear at contact points, and the bell is slightly egg-shaped - this does not prevent the instrument from playing with a beautiful tone. Vince Penzarella of NY Phil approved this trumpet.
