Bach Commercial LT190 Stradivarius Trumpets
Designed to meet the needs of the modern trumpet player, the new Bach Commercial LT190 trumpets are turning player’s heads! Launched in 2014, the Bach Commercial is based on the new Bach 190 platform which features the vintage style 2 piece valve casings. In the Bach Commercial models, the upper baluster is made from bronze to pair with the #1B bell on the Bach Commercial. The horn is designed for unbelievably quick response and attack, but while maintaining a richer, thicker core thanks the the added mass of the bronze alloy.
“Every Bach Commercial is completely inspected in our Bach ProShop to guarantee it’s quality. Any Bach Commercial that does not meet our standards is sent back to Bach.”
Bach Commercial Model Features
The Bach Commercial is based around the concept of quick response & immediate attack while maintaining tonal depth and richness. This achieved by pairing the following design features:
- #1B Lightweight Bronze 5″ Bell – Bach’s very first bell design, made out of Bronze for great warmth!
- 190 Series 2 Piece Casings – With Bronze upper balusters to give a richer core to the tone and balance the horn’s response
- 2 Bore Options – Available in either a .459″ ML or .462″ L Bore
- Ultra Lightweight Construction – This is Bach’s lightest weight design giving incredibly quick response
- 2 Main Tuning Slides – Both a traditional squared & rounded “D” slide are included for further customization

Bach Commercial Screening Process
Bach Commercial 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 Commercial 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 Commercial 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 Commercial 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 Commercial fails ANY of our tests is sent back to Bach, period.
We go through great lengths to ensure that our Bach Commercial Stradivarius Trumpets are AMAZING instruments. We are going to send you a Bach Commercial 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 Commercial 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 Commercial 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!
