Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer to create brass instruments of unequalled tonal quality. Often copied but never duplicated, Bach Stradivarius instruments today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide. The Bach B185 features our antimicrobial lacquer to give this instrument a natural barrier to bateria and deactivates viruses.


  • 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.
