    Trombone Outfit w/Lightweight Slide

    The Bach Stradivarius LT42 is a professional large bore (0.547") symphonic trombone. The 42 has defined the modern symphonic trombone sound. It has been copied in whole or part by many other makers, from large manufacturers to small specialty makers. The42's characteristic sound is dark and resonant, with little edge and great carrying power. Like many of Vincent Bach's designs, it is famous for its ability to "slot," and for its uniformity of tone throughout its scale and dynamic range. It is especially well suited for orchestral work, where it can disappear into, subtly blend with or completely dominate an ensemble. Features include a 8.5" one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass bell, nickel outer slide tubes, seamless chrome-plated nickel silver inner slide tubes, nickel silver slide handgrips, tubular nickel silver body braces, removable balance weight, Bach 6.5A mouthpiece (can be swapped for any in-stock Bach mouthpiece of similar cost at no additional charge) and a model 1867 fabric covered wood shell case. Options (at additional cost) include gold brass or solid sterling silver bells, heavy guage bell material, open gooseneck, removable leadpipe, set of three interchangeable leadpipes, silver plated finish & bell engraving.
    General features include:
    • 8.5" one-piece hand-hammered bell. A one-piece bell generally gives a better response over two-piece designs due to the lack of the additional solder joint at the bell flare.
    • Yellow brass bell material. Though subject to debate, yellow brass is often thought to make for better projection with more clarity than red, rose or gold brass.
    • Nickel outer slide tubes. Nickel outer tubes are lighter yet much harder than standard brass tubes. The result is a slide that is especially easy to work and at the same time very durable. Nickel slides are thought by some to produce a slightly lighter, brighter sound, though this is subject to great debate.
    • Seamless chrome-plated nickel silver inner slide tubes. The lack of a seam helps make the inner tubes perfectly round—they don't flatten or bulge at the seam. This, together with the polished nickel finish makes the action quick, light and quiet.
    • Nickel silver slide handgrips. Lacquered nickel grips resist corrosion far better than brass grips and also prevent staining of your skin.
    • Tubular nickel silver body braces. Nickel braces are lightweight and tough, reducing weight and increasing body integrity.
    • Bach 6.5A mouthpiece. The 6.5A is a decent mouthpiece for this horn. It can be swapped for a 5G (a better match for experienced players) or any other in-stock Bach mouthpiece of similar cost at no additional charge.
    • Wood shell case. Bach's case is protective and durable. New shaped design is slimmer than previous models and features latches instead of zippers.
    • Metal cleaning rod. Standard with every Bach Strad trombone. You're going to need one anyway, and this saves you the expense later on.
    Most Appropriate Music: Classical, Commercial, Pop.
    Most Appropriate Ensembles: Orchestra, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Marching Band, Brass Quintet/Brass Ensemble. Chamber Ensembles.
