Pros: Beautiful dark, enchanting lyrical sound.
Cons: Not for everyone, forget high loud jazz parts

 
Mine is a 180MLV65G w/44 leadpipe. Absolutely fantastic for those slow lyrical pieces. Very dark sound with not much edge at all. Great for solos, but may have trouble blending with others. I recommend try before buying.

Pros: great sound, great intonation
Cons: none

 
Have played a 180MLV72 with #43 leaderpipe for several years. I chose this horn over numerous others because it played so well in tune above the staff and it has a great sound, similar to that of a standard (i.e. non-vindabona) Bach 43, a little brighter than most 37s that I have tried. It is a very versatile, suitable for big band, jazz, or classical. It has a big sweet sound with a larger mouthpiece and brightens up nicely with a smaller piece.

Pros: Great tone, less resistance than most Strads
Cons: Tight above high C

 
Been playing trumpet for 45 yrars. I picked up an almost new 1974 Bach Strad in silverplate a week ago. I own 3 Strads now. This one is excellent. Nice rounded, defined, full tone -"the Bach sound" that has made Bach famous. Less bright than most of my other horns. Intonation requires using the slides. It doesn't slot quite as well as others (or as well as my Kanstul 1537 Bach clone). It plays more open than my other 2 Strads -and requires more air, though all are ML bore. Horn gets "tight" as you get to a high C and above -typical of Strads. Overall, this Strad is one of the best pro horns one can find (Bachs are highly variable-range from dogs to some of the best horns made, regardless of cost).
