The Bach Artisan line brings together classic design elements from Bach Stradivarius trombones coupled with an expansive option of modular components, allowing players a more customized approach to find their voice. Every player has different needs and physique, which play an important role in finding an instrument that can help them create the concept of sound and individuality desired. The Bach sound has defined orchestral playing for generations, and now that sound can be taken to the furthest stretches of your imagination. Our most popular options are brought together in a collection of standard models, or you can customize your setup with a wide variety of components to fit your playing needs.

The A42I combines the great features of an Artisan A47I “Infinity” valve section with the option of a 42 bell. Identical in many ways, the one aspect that stands out differently is the rate of taper compared to the 47 bell. The 42 bell taper is more gradual, offering a little more breadth or width of sound. It features the “Infinity” axial flow valve. This patented valve design eliminates the metal-to-metal contact found in any other axial flow design through the use of sealed bearings both in the nose and in the back plate. This assures tight tolerances that will resist wear over time. The .547" bore Artisan handslide features a brass cross brace on the inner slide and contoured waterkey, with newly designed threaded leadpipe receiver. This model includes three interchangeable brass leadpipes to allow players more options to fit their individual needs.
