From the Canadian Brass Collection, this horn is in great playing condition.Spring tension on the first valve is not standard to this instrument, this horn has had customization including being gold plated. Skillfully handcrafted, Artisan culminates in a unique blend of classic design, elegant styling, and the signature Bach sound. Over a year in the making, development of The Artisan Collection with contributions to acoustic design and testing was aided by long-time Bach artists Michael Sachs, principal trumpet, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Phil Smith, principal trumpet, New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The Artisan Collection enhances the entire line of Bach Stradivarius by offering today's players the look, feel and signature Bach sound of vintage Bach designs. Staying true to key elements of Vincent Bach's original designs was critical in the development of this new collection to allow the player to discover the Artisan within.
