Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both an accomplished musician and a talented engineer to create brass instruments of unequaled tonal quality. Often copied but never duplicated, Bach Stradivarius instruments today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide. The Bach 180 series B-flat trumpets are the most versatile available offering more options that meet the demanding needs of today's most discriminating players.
The Bach 180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional trumpets in the world. The LT180 series was designed for players seeking a lively trumpet with a brighter sound and quicker response. The lightweight body and one-piece hand-hammered professional bell in #37 taper and the standard mouthpipe add to the centered sound and brilliant tone of this model. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. The LT180S37 with a .459" medium-large bore will rise above the sound of any ensemble.
This particular LT180S37 was play-tested and hand-selected just for you! Renowned trumpet artist Rashawn Ross visited the Vincent Bach plant in Elkhart, IN on October 16, 2018 to test a large selection of trumpets to find the very best of the best.
A versatile trumpeter and arranger, Rashawn Ross started his musical journey from humble beginnings in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. While attending Charlotte Amalie High School, Ross began performing and traveling with some of the island's most popular calypso and dance bands. Upon graduation from high school in 1996, Rashawn attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, graduating in 2000.
Jazz was the foundation of his passion for music, a love that he inherited from his father who was a jazz enthusiast. Although jazz is a huge influence in his life, Rashawn has compiled a large resume with artists in many different genres ranging from funk, jazz, rock, hip hop, R&B, soul, pop, Latin, calypso, gospel, and country.
Ross has toured with Yerba Buena, Lettuce, Soulive, DJ Quik, and Usher. Rashawn began working with Dave Matthews Band in 2005 and became a permanent fixture in the band on the road and in the studio. Named highest grossing touring act of the decade, they sold more tickets to their concerts than any other act in the world between the years 2000 and 2010. Dave Matthews Band is also the only band in history to have SIX consecutive albums debut at #1 on the billboard charts.
