FS: Bach 42B 1990's under $1K

Post by biggiesmalls » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:10 pm

I acquired this 1990's 42B from a player who graduated from Oberlin Conservatory while playing it, so yes, it's a great player!

With the exception of a couple of creases that have been burnished out of the flare, and a few existing dings in the slide crook, this horn has no dents and shows no evidence of dent removal. Quite a bit of lacquer loss (typical of Bach's of this era), but still very presentable.

Slide action is excellent, 9/10, so good that it feels lubricated even when it's dry.

The previous owner had a slightly shorter linkage arm installed on the valve, so the thumb lever sits slightly forward compared to the stock position. If you wish, the entire valve linkage can be easily converted to the current Bach linkage setup with a readily available kit (~$125).

$975 shipped to CONUS. Includes original Bach brownie case plus Bach 6.5AL large shank mouthpiece.

Please email for more pics.
