About the Model 42BOF

The year 2018 represents a milestone in the history of Vincent Bach. Having started his business in 1918, master craftsman Vincent Bach created a legacy with the introduction of the first Bach trumpets in 1924 and the addition of trombones to the Vincent Bach line around 1928. To celebrate a legacy lasting 100 years, Conn-Selmer and Vincent Bach proudly present the new 42BOF commemorative trombone.

This is the most responsive valve on a Bach trombone that I have ever played.

-Jay Friedman, CSO



  • A traditional 42 bell, with the ultimate in tonal response and ability to change the color of sound
