Does anyone know if Bach still made a small bore Strad during the early Mt. Vernon years?
Just bought a 1955 Mr. Vernon M bore a month ago and I'm moticing the difference and I like it. A little better focused from the ML, a little easier to play with a slight improvement in range. All with less air.

yes, they made a small bore during the Mt. Vernon era. These were not std. models, and were more than likely special order models.

Like to hear from anyone who owns or has played a Bach Strad Mt. Vernon era Small bore horn. If I'm having good luck with a Medium bore Mt. Vernon Strad perhaps a Small bore horn would be even better? Many pro players in the 30's and 30's did very well with small bore horns.
