"The Bach Stradivarius line of trumpets are the best, most well designed horns available. If you want a good horn and have a few years under your belt, I HIGHLY suggest upgrading. The ability to center your tone and add color to it is unmatched. The clarity in the high register is phenominal, and the low range is great too. No matter what style playing you do, you can get a Strad that'll match it. You won't make a mistake when purchasing a Strad."
