Bach "Early Elkhart" Large Bore C trumpet with 229 Bell - Gold Plated

These early Elkhart large Bore C trumpets are getting hard to find.  Bach was still making a lot of ML Bore C trumpets at the time.  

Great playing Bach Strad 229 C large bore trumpet for sale in gold plate. Serial 45015. Few modifications on this horn. ‘F’ stop on third valve slide. Amado water key on tuning slide. Finger hook added on 1st valve slide. The leadpipe is a full-length Bach 25 pipe in a hidden reversed style. Gives a more open feel & better intonation. Brushed gold plated finish with polished gold plated slides and inner bell. The plating is starting to fade in a couple of places but overall in really great shape. There are a couple of well made patches applied where the slide tubes connect to the first and third valves.  All modifications done by Eclipse trumpets before we acquired it. Super fast and smooth valves and slides. Great compression. Plays exceptionally well in tune and slots really well. A great C trumpet with that classic rich Bach sound, perfect for all orchestral repertoire.

The bell is not stamped "CORPORATION" which would be expected based on the serial number, so it is quite possible that the bell is not the original one to this horn, but with the various modifications, this is certainly not in original condition, so it's value is in how well it plays...like an early Elkhart CL229!

Does not come with a case, but a generic case can be provided if needed.
