Press Release – New Bach Stradivarius Trombone Based on Pro Preference (2005)

New Bach Stradivarius Trombone Based on Pro Preference
3 February 2005

Conn-Selmer, Inc. is introducing the new Bach Stradivarius LT42 Symphonic Gold Trombone. The favorite choice of Jay Friedman, principal trombone with the Chicago Symphony orchestra, this new production instrument is based on the design of the Bach Stradivarius model 42, one of the most popular professional trombones in history.

The Bach Stradivarius LT42 Symphonic Gold Trombone features a one-piece, hand hammered lightweight gold brass bell and a lightweight hand slide. Gold brass is a special alloy comprised of 85% copper. Built on the model 42 mandrel, the LT42 Symphonic Gold bell wall thickness is .020″, slightly thinner than the standard model. The Symphonic Gold acronym provides clues to its design: Gold brass bell, Open wrap, Lightweight Design.

This model (#LT42TGLW50) also features a .562″ hand slide bore measured on the chrome plated nickel silver inner slide tubes. Seamless nickel silver outside slide tubes provide further weight reduction while providing added strength.

The open wrap F attachment features a special free-flowing die cast aluminum valve. This “T” valve provides for less resistance, as preferred by most professional players. It is enclosed in a brass casing, which provides for proper weight, balance and protection. The valve is also designed to provide quicker action and more stability than similar retrofit valves.

The outfit includes a genuine Vincent Bach mouthpiece and professional hard shell case. It is available through all Bach dealers.
