Excellent lead trumpet for jazz bands.
The LT180S43 combines the popular design of the Stradivarius Series with the #43 taper bell that has a slower taper to produce a brighter sound that is more brilliant and open than the standard #37 taper. The LT180S43 then uses the #43 taper with a lightweight bell and combines that with a lightweight body design to create a trumpet that produces freer vibrations, making the instrument respond more freely, especially in the upper register. This combination offers the player an instrument that is well suited for use in jazz when a player is spending a long time in the upper register and needs to produce a slightly brighter sound without the additional work
Please Note: All Bach trumpets and cornets come with 1st valve slide hook, 3rd valve slide ring, case, and mouthpiece, unless otherwise specified.
