Is a 239 bell off of a Bach Eb/D trumpet the exact same as a 239 bell from a C trumpet? Specifically, if I were to put the Eb/D bell on a C trumpet, would there be any bore size issues, or is it the same stock bell? Thanks!

KennyIt's the same bell flare but the E flat/D bell has less tubing going into the first valve so you'd have to add some kind of adaptor to get the proper C trumpet length. Probably not worth the expense and possibility that it might not come out the way you want.
