The Bach C180 series trumpets are the number one selling professional orchestral trumpets in the world. The C180L239 features a #239 one-piece hand-hammered professional bell that produces a big, rich, warm sound with great projection. The #25C leadpipe offers slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. These features combined with a .462 large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound well suited for all orchestral literature.
