The Vindabona was designed to create the sound of a rotary trumpet with the comfort and ease of Monel pistons.
The Bach 180 Stradivarius Vindabona Series Bb Trumpet features a dual, more conical bore design giving the trumpet a dark, warm sound. It also has a #43 leadpipe for a more open feel and a #72 taper bell which is darker than the standard #37 taper.

Comments about Bach 180MLV Stradivarius Vindabona Series Bb Trumpet:
I purchased the Bach 180MLV Stradivarius Vindabona Series Bb Trumpet (180SMLV Silver) for my granddaughter's high school graduation gift and upcoming college marching band. She researched, tested and chose this trumpet over others. The sound is much cleaner, crisper, and more precise than her first trumpet. She immediately adapted herself to the new feel and will no doubt be making beautiful music for many years to come.
