Bach 42BOS Stradivarius Tenor Trombone in Silver Plate, Used


Sold Out

Item Details

This is a Bach 42BOS professional large bore tenor trombone in silver plate made in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.  The Bach 42 is one of the premier large bore trombones used in orchestras and bands around the world, and the silver plate finish gives you a little extra bling.  This particular model is lightly used and has been in storage for some time.  It's ready for a second life.

This Bach has a terrific hand slide.  Even when dry it's completely smooth and silent.  I gave a cursory polish to the horn before taking photos, but it could be shinier by adding more sweat equity.
