Making changes to the already renown Stradivarius was not an undertaking Conn-Selmer took lightly, but the Artisan Series combines a unique blend of classic design, elegant styling, and the signature Bach sound. The Bach AC190 C Trumpet relies heavily on vintage Vincent Bach design features resulting in a clean centered sound.The Artisan AC190 features a .462 bore and a 4-13/16 diameter one piece hand hammered bell. A flat rim and proprietary acoustic treament gives this bell a pure, responsive tone. Monel pistons can be customized with each trumpet coming equiped with 2 sets of valve guides- brass/plastic- to meet the needs of each individual player. A first slide split finger ring allows for easy real time tunning. Enhancing the entire line of Bach Stradivarius, the Artisan AC190 C Trumpet offers the look, feel and signature Bach sound of vintage Vincent Bach designs.
