Celebrating 100 Years of Bach

The year 2018 represents a milestone in the history of Vincent Bach manufacturing. Having starting his business in 1918, master craftsman Vincent Bach created a legacy that has continued over the last 100 years, with the introduction of the first Bach trumpets in 1924 and the addition of trombones to the Vincent Bach line around 1928. To celebrate this achievement, Conn-Selmer and Vincent Bach proudly present the new 190S43W2 “Centennial” commemorative Bb trumpet and the new 42BOF commemorative trombone.
