Am looking at a trumpet advertized as a Bach Stradivarius, serial number 476511. The bell is engraved with the Vincent Bach signature with R above, Elkhart, IN below. Neither the word Stradivarius nor the model"37" is engraved on the bell.

Could this be another model? or possibly an imposter?

Thanks

I've not seen a Bach Stradivarius that does not have Stradivarius on the bell... Would guess this is not a Stradivarius model.

Thanks, that saves me from making a bad purchase.

Sorry, I don't have the trumpet, so I can't take a photo.
