Stradivarius - .459 Medium-large bore, standard weight body, standard weight yellow brass one-piece hand-hammered #37 bell, standard construction #25 mouthpipe, monel pistons, silver-plate finish. Comes with Bach 7C mouthpiece and a zippered Cordura covered wood shell case.
The 180S37 features a #37 bell with a medium-fast taper to produce a sound that has a brilliant sound with a warm quality that allows this instrument to work well in multiple musical settings from jazz to concert or solo playing. The #25 leadpipe allows for slight resistance that is effective in centering tone production. These features combined with a .459-inch medium-large bore allow the player to produce a well-rounded sound while not over-extending the endurance level of the player. The result is less air leakage that could cause performance problems.
