Bach Stradivarius “Centennial” Professional Bb/F Tenor Trombone – .547″ Large Bore, 8 1/2″ One-piece Hand-Hammered Yellow Brass Bell with Bell-Free Bracing, Light-weight Nickel-silver 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 LT42BOF features a traditional 42 bell, with the ultimate in tonal response and ability to change the color of sound. “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. The chrome plated nickel silver inner handslide tubes provide the ideal surface for smooth and quick handslide action while the lightweight nickel outer handslide provides a light and quick response. Jay Friedman, principal trombonist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, was involved with the design of this trombone.
