For decades, students and professionals have sought out Bach trumpets and trombones and preferred the craftsmanship of their mouthpieces. Today, Bach brass instruments live up to their history with a strong, clear tone and durability that handles practice after practice.
About the Bach Brass Brand
Founder Vincent Shrotenbach started his musical training on the violin but switched to trumpet later on. While his education was in science, he sought a career as a musician and ended up touring for a number of years under the name Vincent Bach.
From Europe, he migrated to the United States, where he landed positions with the Boston Symphony and the Metropolitan Opera House. Outside of performing, he had a habit of revising the design of his old mouthpieces. His developments here inspired his next venture: By 1918, he started manufacturing mouthpieces for brass instruments and eventually began producing his own trumpets and trombones. During these early years, professionals considered Bach brass instruments superior to the competition.
Later sold to the Selmer Company, Bach trumpets and trombones continue to deliver the quality that attracted players close to a century ago. Today, the company's lineup includes:
Trumpets: Handcrafted out of brass, Bach trumpets are made in the U.S. and encompass student, intermediate and professional models. Players of all levels prefer the sound a Bach trumpet delivers and appreciate their durability.
Trombones: While trombones appeared later in Bach's product line, their reputation is just as strong. With a body handcrafted out of gold brass, Bach trombones offer effortless projection and a warm tone, enhanced by their one-piece construction and the sterling bell's flare and thickness.
Mouthpieces: The product that launched the Bach brand has a history of innovative designs. Today, a computer-numeric-controlled machine crafts each out of a solid brass bar, down to 1/10,000th of an inch precision. Mouthpieces span options for trumpets, coronets, fluegelhorns and trombones, with a design meant to improve a player's tonguing, breath and articulation techniques. A wide array of cups, rims and backbores presents several near-custom options for players.
