Conn-Selmer has announced the introduction of a new student trumpet under its famous Bach brand name. The Bach model TR500 trumpet aims to offer an affordable option for beginning players and to give Bach fans a choice in instrument designs within the Bach student line.
Created for teachers who prefer a traditional student trumpet design, the Bach TR500 trumpet is “built to the most stringent specifications”. The TR500 features a .460” bore, nickel silver trim, a red brass lead pipe and a pin-style third slide stop, in addition to nickel silver pistons with two point valve guides, fixed third slide finger ring, and first slide thumb hook. Finger buttons are genuine mother-of-pearl, and the outfit includes the same hard shell case as other Bach student trumpets and a Vincent Bach 7C mouthpiece.
The design and construction of the Bach TR500 differs from that of the specially constructed Bach TR300H, one of the most popular student trumpets in the world. For teachers who prefer the construction and concept of sound of traditional Bach student trumpets, the TR300H continues to be available. The Bach TR500 design is more in keeping with other competitive models but at a lower price. For those who prefer this more standard design, the TR500 offers an affordable option for beginning players. Please visit the Conn-Selmer website for additional information.
