The star after the bell (ie. 72*) indicates a light weight bell.

nick in njAs previously mentioned the star indicates it's a lightweight instrument. Unless otherwise marked the leadpipe is usually a 25. Lots of 72* had a 43 leadpipe and is marked on the hexagonal mouthpiece receiver.

The * indicates a lightweight bell. The LT180 comes standard with a 25 leadpipe. Unless it's marked otherwise that should be the one.

The * indicates a lightweight bell and the lightweight body !
(At the LR model are no star at the bell, but have the lightweight body too, no light bell !)
The LT180 comes standard with a 25 leadpipe. Look 37* and 43* bells, but the 72* lightweight bell and body comes with the 25-0 who is use in XL bore models too.
At the 72* the 25-0 is the standard and not special indicated at the mouthpipe reiciver. I think it is a little bit smaller than the standard 25 leadpipe for better control the big sounding bell or the big XL bore. When you look at the original Bach description there is written that the 25-0 is more free blowing and flexible as the standard, but I Think thats not the mouthpipe what they mean, but the combination of trumpet, where the 25-0 comes with.
(180XL 43/25-0 and LT180ML 72*/25-0)
