Bach 180S43 Stradivarius 180 Series Silver Trumpet
Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer to create brass instruments of unequaled total quality - instruments which today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide.
Born Vincent Schrotenbach in Vienna in 1890, he initially received training on the violin, then switched to the trumpet when he heard its majestic sound.
Although Vincent also displayed a strong aptitude for science and graduated from the Maschinenbauschule with an engineering degree, he gave up a promising engineering career to pursue his first love and an uncertain future as a musician. The risk paid off. Performing under the stage name of Vincent Bach, he established musical success as he toured throughout Europe.
World War I forced Vincent's move to New York City where he arrived with only $5.00 in his pockets. A letter to the famous conductor Karl Muck got Vincent an audition and a resulting position with the Boston Symphony. By the following season, Vincent was first trumpet in the Metropolitan Opera House opera and ballet orchestras, performing in the American premiere of Stravinsky's Petroushka and Firebird.
While on tour in Pittsburgh, Vincent was convinced by a repairman that he could improve the mouthpiece on Vincent's trumpet. After the man ruined the mouthpiece, Vincent had great difficulty finding a suitable replacement. This was the beginning of Vincent's realization of the very real need for high-quality mouthpieces.
