Worth the money...

By Andrew-VMBv2

from Woodridge, IL

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

Being a euphonium player by training I began playing bass trombone in college as my secondary instrument. Our school had an edwards bass, which was a fine instrument. However, upon graduating I needed my own bass trombone. I became aware of the Bach 50T at an intercollegiate honor band where one of the bass trombonists was performing on this instrument. The size and richness of the sound grabbed my attention. When I finally had the opportunity to play a Bach 50T for myself I found that there is much more that is appealing about this instrument than just the size of its sound. The tone color of this horn is extremely versatile, it can be warm and mellow just as easily as it can have an edge to project through an ensemble. The low register in particular caught my attention, it was extremely focused and lost virtually nothing in the way of tone quality...an essential for bass trombone playing. I must add that compared to the other bass trombones I have played on (Besson Soveriegn, Edwards, Bach 50B) this instrument requires a considerably larger amount of air to produce a full supported sound, but this is a minor adjustment a person can adapt to quickly.

Great Product

By Sean-pJWJR

from Texas

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I am a bass trombone player and I was given this horn in high school brand new. The Thayer valves prove to be the best part of this package because of the amount of air that can be moved through them when descending through the triggers. When I graduated, I had to keep this horn so I bought it from the school and have been playing it ever since. I have met many other bass trombone players in high school and college, etc. that have had very expensive with famous names like Getzen or Edwards, but when they played my horn they were surprised how similar this horn was to theirs. When we would play together my horn had a great tone, and I had spent almost half of what they had. This horn is one of Bach's greatest accomplishments.

Great Horn

By Conner Habib

from California

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I have played many Bach trombones over the years. The one review saying they hit their peak and then decline is not true. I have a 35 year old Bach 36 with an F trigger the only time it has ever had any problems is when some kind person decides to try and "adjust" my rotor for me. Then I spend an hour making it not sound like a jackhammer. In my opinion the hangman and Thayer valves are about the same in providing less resistance. The Thayer will sound darker though because they have a great deal more mass.If you can find a used horn thats already broken in, go for it. If someone buys a Bach Strad they probably will take care of it.Always be cautious of '' Overhauls" though.Happy playing to everyoneAll around great bass trombone.Conner Habib

Big and Beautiful

By Paul Andrew Roberts

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

Just got my Bach LT50T3LG today and it blows the other two Bach bass bones I own away!!! (the others being a LT50B3OG and a LT50B3L). This is the bass bone with the 10 1/2 Gold, (not Yellow), brass bell and the lightweight slide. Beautiful sound. Dark and mellow when played gently, but allows for a huge amount of volume without "blatting" when played strongly. This horn will work both in Jazzbands as well as Orchestral and Studio work. I've been playing bass trombone for 20+ years and this has been one of the most exciting days when I saw the UPS truck show up. I have been very satisfied with this horn so far just as I have been with the other 6 Bachs I have owned over the years.A word of warning. A horn like this is not for the faint of heart, (or short of breath). This might be too much horn for someone who only "doubles" of bass bone.

These bones work!

By Richard Rodriguez

from Oxnard, CA

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

This is the best bass trombone I have ever played.The roter system is the best and the open wrap design allows for a great air flow. You will never get this superior sound from any other trombone on the market. In three words, these bones work!

deBaching the bone

By music lover

from Singapore

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I bought my first bass trombone in 1998 and it was a beautiful Bach 50K3G. As with lots of Bach horns, the one I had was fantastic and for the first few years, I was a happy customer using the horn all over the world in music festivals, operas, concert bands, jazz - it serves well for all types of groups and gave me an incredible experience. The good thing about the Bach is that the sound just keeps getting better and better as the instrument continues to season. However, this past one year has been a pain for me as I realized the instrument actually deteriorates quite fast after it reaches a peak of seasoning. My horn starts giving me a rattling noise when I play some notes - usually its the low Ab, Bb, D. I have since experienced similar problems in Bach trombones of around 5 - 6 years.

my view after playingn it for 2 1/5 years

By Charlie smith-.L1n-

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I have had a Bach 50T3GL (dual thayr's, 10.5" gold brass bell, independant thayr's) for a little under 3 years. I cam efrom a 50BG3. As my earlier review says this horn is worth all of the money you will spend on it. I played this horn in the college brass quintet since I got it (we had no tuba player that was a major at the time). Other members of the quintet felt it eventhough it did not have all of the qualities of a tuba it added somthing that a tuba couldn't. Especially when there were trios between the horn, trombone and tuba part. It seemed to balance and blend better.I also played this horn in orchestras, wind ensembles and jazz bands, all superior tone quality, color, ease of articulation and flexibility. I used a maga-tone mouthiece to darken the sound and went back to the standard. Mega-tone seemed to make the articulation more resistant. Also if you plan on only playing in a jazz/pop/rock band I would recomend the standard rotor in either the traditional (closed) wrap or the open wrap. The resistance in the standard rotor that my old horn had made it easier to "lean " into the sound needed in many of the new and many old stage band pieces. The thayrs were nice but almost too open for that application.Best of luck in your quest for that "dream horn". I have found mine.

Excellent

By Danny M

from ohio

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I've played on quite a few bass bones, but this one takes the cake. The legendary Duo gravious is nothing compared to this workhorse. It is just unbelievably open and the range is extraordinarily easy. The slide is so straight when you get it and the rotors are smooth. The only down side is the bell is extremely soft. Around the same density as a horn bell. The Thayer is unbelievable and you don't even hear or feel it when you use them. There's no pop or clicking or anything. The best thing that ever happened to me. I don't know where I would be with out it. Thank you Bach. Job well done.

These bass trombones are amazing

By Tim-nUpWC

from Chicago

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

These bass trombones are amazing. The first time I pulled one of these out of the case in public, I turned heads. I personally think that the added weight of the Thayer valves, rather than having standard rotor valves, are a good trade off for the smooth playing. I would say be careful for less than serious musicians making this purchase because of the thin metal in the bell and slide. But overall, this is the most amazing horn I have played on. Warm and dark tone.

outstanding

By Charlie Smith

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Bach 50T3 Stradivarius Professional Bass Trombone:

I had a Bach 50B3 (standard rotor, traditional wrap). I almost knew i wanted to upgrade to a Bach 50T3GL. I tried comparable horns by the two other big names in custom trombones and that sealed the deal. I found the Bach to be a much better horn; the tone was more centered, better response in the low register, could take a much larger dynamic range and still keep that 'signature' Bach sound without getting brassy, especially FFF in the low register. I am in the process of saving for a single valve 50T. This horn is worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.
