View Full Version : Yard sale find of Bach Stradivarius 37. Need Info on my find

I purchased a Bach Stradivarius Model 37, ML301070, silver trumpet at a yard sale for $50.00. Can someone tell me all the details of my find and what it is worth, please? It is in excellent condition but in need of a polishing (according to the local band instructor), plays beautifully, and no visiable signs of scratches.

The 37 is Bach's most common/popular horn. A 3XX,XXX horn would have been made about 1989 or so.

It's certainly worth more than $50. Heck, I'd double your money.

How do you know if the trumpet is a C or Bb ?

A C usually has a shorter leadpipe and a Bb has a longer leadpipe, here are some examples........

This is a Bb Trumpet


This is a C Trumpet
