Bach Stradivarius “Centennial” Professional Bb/F Tenor Trombone – .547″ Large Bore, 8 1/2″ One-piece Hand-Hammered Gold Brass Bell with Bell-Free Bracing, Yellow Brass Outer Slide, Open Wrap F Attachment, European Open Flow Rotor, Stradivarius Case and Genuine Bach Mouthpiece – Lacquered Finish
The year 2018 represents a milestone in the history of Vincent Bach. Having started his business in 1918, master craftsman Vincent Bach created a legacy with the introduction of the first Bach trumpets in 1924 and the addition of trombones to the Vincent Bach line around 1928. To celebrate a legacy lasting 100 years, Conn-Selmer and Vincent Bach proudly present the new 42BOF commemorative trombone.
The 42BOFG features a traditional 42 bell, with the ultimate in tonal response and ability to change the color of sound. The gold brass bell, softer and more red than the standard yellow brass due to a higher copper content, results in a warm tone. “Bell-free bracing” allows the bell to vibrate freely, creating a quicker response with more clarity and projection. The new European designed “Open-Flow” valve creates an ease of playability in the low register, while maintaining a great high range as well. Jay Friedman, principal trombonist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, was involved with the design of this trombone.
