Magnificent trumpet, which finally returns to the quality of manufacture of the Bach "Mt. Vernon"

StéphaneM, 11.06.2011
This is the Bach trumpet that the fans of the brand were waiting for: the "Bach sound", but with the quality of manufacture that recalls the trumpets made at the time in Mt. Vernon (until 1964), or at least before the Big strike of 2006 that has greatly impacted the quality of the Bach manufactured in large series.

The sound first, very flexible for all types of classic use:

- sufficiently clear for concerting works, chamber music, or to disengage from the orchestra during a symphonic feature, thanks in particular to the pavilion ring which improves the projection,

- sufficiently rich in harmonics to blend into a section of trumpets, with the famous "Bach Stradivarius" that one finds. The dynamics is very important, and we must send a lot of air before hoping to hear the shock waves in the fortissimo!

I can not pronounce on the use for jazz or variety, it is not the vocation of a trumpet in C.

The intonation then: it remains obviously the main limitation of this trumpet, as for almost all trumpets in C with wide bore (L) and with short branch (a 6 ", according to my information) The L piston is very correct with the correction of the lips (and its tone remains good), but the E flattened second piston and the mi Acute to empty are far too low, it is better to use alternative fingerings.

The answer is perfect on a large part of the register. Not as easy as a Yamaha in the treble of course, or that on a trumpet in B-flat, but anyone knows that a trumpet is made of compromise! And this Bach is first and foremost a breathtaking stamp!

The quality of production is exceptional, the alignment of the pistons perfect (you can always nibble on the tenth of mm offset, but easily correctable by playing on the piston wedges), the roof engravings really harmonious, elegant and well finished . All slides are perfectly aligned.

The monel pistons come with brass guides, but also a set of plastic guides for those who would prefer (are there?).

Note that there is no water key on the 3rd piston slide, but personally I have never found it very useful, on the contrary, it constitutes an additional obstacle on a portion of pipe already convoluted ! At worst, from time to time, you can empty the water by removing the slide as the horns do!

The case delivered is of very high quality: rigid and heavy, not very practical to travel light, but it is a bunker with trumpet! There is a place for a second trumpet in C or B flat, as well as an isolated compartment for 2 mouthpieces (weighted or normal) + some maintenance products. The trumpet is set and does not move a mm once inside, it is reassuring for delivery!
