Bach Trombone Outfit w/Hagmann Valve & Goldbrass Bell
Same as model 42A but with a goldbrass bell. The Bach Stradivarius 42AG is a professional large bore (0.547") symphonic trombone with a Renee Hagmann Freeflow valve and open wrap F attachment. The Hagmann valve provides for an uninterrupted airflow through the valve section. This makes the horn especially free-blowing, allows the F attachment notes to match the open horn in both tone and feel, and makes for a fuller low register. General features include:
8.5" one-piece hand-hammered bell. A one-piece bell generally gives a better response over two-piece designs due to the lack of the additional solder joint at the bell flare.
Goldbrass bell material. Though subject to debate, gold brass is often thought to make for a warmer sound to the player, with slightly less projection than yellow brass. No gold is used in the manufacture of such a bell.
Brass outer slide tubes. Brass outer tubes are generally thought to help produce a darker, more intense sound with great projection that is less apt to "break up" at high volume levels.
Seamless chrome-plated nickel silver inner slide tubes. The lack of a seam helps make the inner tubes perfectly roundthey don't flatten or bulge at the seam. This, together with the polished nickel finish makes the action quick, light and quiet.
Nickel silver slide handgrips. Lacquered nickel grips resist corrosion far better than brass grips and also prevent staining of your skin.
Tubular nickel silver body braces. Nickel braces are lightweight and tough, reducing weight and increasing body integrity.
Bach 6.5A mouthpiece. The 6.5A is a decent mouthpiece for this horn. It can be swapped for a 5G (a better match for experienced players) or any other in-stock Bach mouthpiece of similar cost at no additional charge.
Fabric covered wood shell case. Bach's case is protective and durable, though a little on the large side. It has a zipper enclosure with a velcro flap. A large outside zippered pocket is convenient for music storage.
Metal cleaning rod. Standard with every Bach Strad trombone. You're going to need one anyway, and this saves you the expense later on.
