Bach AP190S Stradivarius Artisan Series Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet
- Instrument Type:
- Piccolo Trumpet
Each Artisan Piccolo trumpet is made with a one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass bell with a flat rim and special acoustic treatment resulting in a beautiful Bach Stradivarius sound with a focused core and a broader range of color. The AP190S comes with a set of 4 leadpipes with both trumpet and cornet shank mouthpiece receivers in A and Bb. The two-piece valve construction with nickel balusters and brass casings harkens back to the construction techniques used by Vincent Bach when making classic Bach trumpets in New York City and Mount Vernon, New York. Four Monel pistons along with two sets of brass and plastic valve guides offer the player a choice in response and feel. The enhanced radius ferrules, sculpted bracing, and artistic engraving are all key contributors to the unique response while providing an unparalleled elegance in appearance. The clear lacquer finish of the AP190 provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. These features combined with a .450" bore result in a beautiful and focused sound with superb intonation.
