Here's an incredibly rare Bach Stradivarius, a 65GH with a 5.3" bell and a 44 leadpipe! It also comes with the original 25 leadpipe and a Bach single case in great condition. Original finger buttons included, as are these iridescent finger buttons from Divitt Trumpets. They change color depending on the lighting conditions and angle of view. This is not the kind of trumpet you can just buy off the shelf.
This 65GH/44 configuration has been favored by several big name jazz players. Bach was known to have made horns with this bell size for Jack Sheldon, and this is the only one that we have ever seen with this particular bell diameter. The big bell gives you a great sound spread, but you still get the efficiency of the 44 leadpipe and ML valve block. The 44 leadpipe is essentially a 43 but made from nickel silver. The 65 bell is a rotary valve trumpet style bell, and this one is in heavy gauge gold brass. This horn also has metal valve guides.
This horn was built in 1993. Valve compression is excellent. Overall the horn is in great condition with some light wear and scratching on the silver plate.
