If you follow my page, you may know that I like Bach’s. And I particularly like vintage Bach’s from the Corporation era.
Here is a nice Bach 42b corporation bell, mated with a recent slide from the early 2000’s. As you can see on the pictures, the lacquer on the bell has seen better days. But the valve action is still very good. The slide has not seen a lot of use so it is in very good condition besides some small spots where the lacquer suffered.
The bell sounds great. Nice heavy symphonic sound.
