Hello,
I have a question about the mouthpipes or leadpipes.
At the Bach Stradivarius trumpet LT 180 is lightweight body and lightweight bell, marked with the star at the Bach Logo.
At the standard weight trumpet at the leadpipe the outside pipe, where the main tuning slide comes in is in standard weight nickel silver brass.
At the lightweight trumpet at the leadpipe the outside pipe, where the main tuning slide
comes in is in lightweight yellow brass.

Is the conical part from the leadpipe in thinner brass too, when it`s a leadpipe from a Lightweight/Lightweightbody ? or are the conical part always in the same brass thickness at Standard or lightweight trumpet ?

Thank`s for answers
