Bach 190 Series Professional Trumpets – 50th Anniversary Model
The Mt. Vernon Bach Reborn | Modern Production Meets Vintage Design
Designed in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Bach production in Elkhart, Indiana – the new Bach 190 50th Anniversary models are a throw-back to the vintage Bach’s made in Mt. Vernon, New York. Bach Stradivarius trumpets have been the world’s most recognized, most played on and most respected professional trumpets. The Bach 190 uses a a vintage, time proven traditional design to give players a true, professional trumpet that can go anywhere and play anything!
Back in 2007, Bach’s parent company, Conn-Selmer, decided to return back to the older, traditional manufacturing techniques and methods. They returned to original designs used by Vincent Bach and crafting techniques used back in Mt. Vernon in order to return the Bach to it’s rightful place as the world’s finest professional trumpet. The new Bach 190 50th Anniversary models take it the next step further.
“Every Bach 190 Stradivarius Trumpet is completely inspected and tested in our Bach ProShop to guarantee it’s quality. Any Bach 190 that does not meet our standards is sent back to Bach.”
Bach 190 50th Anniversary
The Bach 190 models are a throw-back to the vintage Mt. Vernon Bachs. These models us the 2 piece valve casings with nickel-silver upper balusters, vintage style wider S brace feet & use the “side seam” bell rotation like the old models did.
These features (other than the side seam bell) will give the Bach 190-37 a thicker core to it’s sound compared to a 180-37.
Bach 180 Series vs. 190 Series
The Bach 190S 50th Anniversary trumpets are built on the new 190 Stradivarius platform. At it’s core, the 190 platform simply refers to the horn’s valve casings.
- Bach 180 Series: Standard 1 Piece Valve Casings made from brass
- Bach 190 Series: 2 Piece Valve Casings with Nickel-Silver or Bronze Upper Balusters

Bach 190 Screening Process
Bach 190 trumpets are made by hand. Even with the improved manufacturing techniques that Bach returned to, this inevitably will create some variance. So with every Bach 190 that comes in our shop, Dave Kessler personally inspects every single one. He checks for structural defects, cosmetic defects and assembly defects. The vibration of the instrument to ensure that the trumpet is a responsive horn. If a Bach 190 is assembled poorly, this results in unnecessary stress in the solder joints that actually hinder vibration and in turn, negatively affects the performance of the Bach 190 trumpet. The most important test of the trumpet for Dave is the vibration test. If a horn doesn’t vibrate well itself (outside of even playing the horn), then it will not be a great playing trumpet.
If a Bach 190 fails ANY of our tests is sent back to Bach, period.
We go through great lengths to ensure that our Bach 190 Stradivarius Trumpets are AMAZING instruments. We are going to send you a Bach 190 that is the epitome of what a Bach Stradivarius trumpet should be. You are going to get a great playing trumpet.
However, in the end we are all different people and we all have different needs
You are the final person in our Bach Screening Process!
This is why we give you a trial period. When you get a new Bach 190 from Kessler & Sons Music, it is accompanied by a 3 day evaluation period. Once you receive it, you have 3 days to test the trumpet yourself. If for ANY reason you are not 100% satisfied with it, you simply let us know and you send it back for a refund or exchange, your choice.
We have an unbelievably low return rate on Bach 190 trumpets specifically because we go through the process to get you a great horn! No other shop out there goes through the lengths that we do for you!
