Video of this trumpet:

Bore: L (.462) Perfect for orchestral and church work.
Overall Condition: Excellent. This Strad played so well, the original owner decided to have it gold plated. Before plating some minor dent work was professionally done. There are also a few modifications to this trumpet that improve it in a practical way. The thumb hook on the first slide has been reangled for better ergonomics. A third slide stop has been added for safety and correct positioning of the "Low "F". Beautiful Oregon purple agate finger buttons have been added as a finishing touch to this unique horn. As with every trumpet I sell, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
This Strad has received Custom Optimization. Over the years, I've learned many secrets of making Bach Strads play and perform even better from top repair techs and my own experimentation. I call it Custom Optimization. This multi-step process turns a good Bach Strad into a really fine or even great Bach. It starts with a thorough cleaning, and precision valve alignment, and employs three other special processes to enhance the playing qualities of the horn. The result is a Strad that both plays and feels markedly better than standard models with a better tone, quicker response, and improved high range. I use Custom Optimization on every Bach I personally own to sound my best. You will feel and enjoy the difference too.
Tone: This Strad has a strong, beautiful, dark singing tone that will work well in many settings.

Serial Number: 230980. This is a professionally crafted horn from 1983.
