Bach cornets trace their history back to 1925 when master craftsman Vincent Bach introduced the first Bach Stradivarius long model professional cornet. The legendary American jazz cornetist Leon Bismark â€œBixâ€ Beiderbecke was the proud owner of cornet serial number 616 built on February 17th, 1927. The more traditional short model cornet was introduced in 1927. Today, Vincent Bach offers a line of USA-made student cornets and professional cornets. Each Bach cornet is handcrafted using the highest quality materials found here in the Midwest region of the United States. Vincent Bach professional cornet models are made is Elkhart, Indiana while a full line of Bach student cornets are made in Eastlake, Ohio. Each handcrafted Bach cornet offers the highest degree of durability, unparalleled performance, and a signature Bach sound.
Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer to create brass instruments of unequalled tonal quality. Often copied but never duplicated, Bach Stradivarius instruments today remain the sound choice of artists worldwide.
