Bach Mariachi Trumpet – Bach LR190 Stradivarius
Designed with Jose Hernandez & Mariachi Sol De Mexico Brass Section
Designed in collaboration with Jose Hernandez of Mariachi Sol De Mexico, the “Bach Mariachi Trumpet” (LR190 Series) Stradivarius trumpets are exceptional horns in all aspects of performance. At the heart of the Bach Mariachi model is the 190 series valve section and the unique #43 Bronze alloy bell. This new model uses the time proven LR180 Series design and combines it with the new 190 platform and heavier alloys to give players an incredibly versatile, powerful & projecting horn that maintains amazing tonal depth and color!
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 Mariachi LR190 models take it the next step further.
“Every Bach Stradivarius Trumpet is completely inspected and tested in our Bach ProShop to guarantee it’s quality. Any Bach that does not meet our standards is sent back to Bach.”
Bach Mariachi LR190 Model
The Bach LR190 models are also referred to as the “Bach Mariachi” or “Jose Hernandez” model due to the fact that the horn was designed in conjunction with Jose Hernandez of Mariach Sol De Mexico – a popular mariachi trumpet player. While the LR190 models are absolutely a great horn for Mariachi players, they are also an exceptional lead jazz horn! Featuring a quick responding, lightweight body, with a richer core from the 2 piece valve casings and a more colorful & powerful tone from the unique #43B Bronze alloy bell.
Bach 180 Series vs. 190 Series
The Bach Mariachi LR190 Series 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 Screening Process
Bach Mariachi LR190 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 Mariachi LR190 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 Mariachi LR190 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 Mariachi LR190 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 Mariachi LR190 fails ANY of our tests is sent back to Bach, period.
We go through great lengths to ensure that our Bach Mariachi LR190 Stradivarius Trumpets are AMAZING instruments. We are going to send you a Bach Mariachi LR190 that is the epitome of what a Bach Stradivarius trumpet should be. You are going to get a great playing trumpet.
