Bach Trumpet History
The original inventor, Vincent Bach, lived a long and industrious life. He was born in 1890 and died in 1976. Those 86 years cover a lot of generations of gifted trumpet players. Here is something interesting to know about the company that I recently learned from the Bach Loyalist Website. Sometime in the early 1950's, Bach moved its factory to Mount Vernon, New York. From 1953 to 1963, Bach Strad trumpets were made in Mount Vernon, New York. Then, a big thing happened: Bach was purchased by Selmer in 1961. Selmer would close the Mount Vernon factory just two years later in 1963 and move Bach production to Elkhart, Indiana. Selmer trademarked the name and shield logo in the early' 60's and continued manufacturing Bach trumpets there. To this day, many Bach trumpet loyalists insist that the best Strads ever made came from the Mount Vernon factory. If you can find one from 1953 to 1963, you can expect the bidding to be very competitive. Most of these trumpets are being sold on eBay by people who are familiar with this history and will have the Mount Vernon name prominently mentioned among the listing. Even the Selmer plant didn't last forever. The plant was closed in 2004 and the company is located in Eastlake Ohio. Bach was very active in between, acquiring Steinway Instruments in 1996, United Musical Instruments in 200, and merging with Conn in in 2003.
