Used 1989 Bach 185S Herald Trumpet in silver, excellent condition. We gave this horn a professional cleaning, valve alignment, and some very minor repairs. The horn plays very well, with good compression and that classic sound of the Bach 37 bell. Comes with original case.

Built on the platform of the world renowned Bach Stradivarius model 18037, the B185 heralding trumpet features a #37 one-piece hand-hammered professional long bell that produces a warm sound with great projection. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. These features combined with a .459" medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all types ceremonial music.
