This Bach Stradivarius Model 229L Trumpet has been completely overhauled. It is absolutely pristine and beautiful with all original lacquer. There is evidence of a dent repair on the throat of the bell just up from the bell where there is minor lacquer crazing. However, other than that one spot the lacquer on this horn is absolutely pristine. The serial number on the horn is CL 61482 making it a Vintage 1970’s horn. The engraving on the bell is still crisp and reads “Stradivarius Model 229L Vincent Bach Corporation Elkhart, Ind. U.S.A.” The horn comes in an original Bach case which is still in excellent condition. No mouthpiece is included. If you would like to purchase a mouthpiece please see our mouthpiece section. This horn has the classic dark, rich Bach sound with excellent intonation and beautiful overtones.
