Bach Professional Model 184SML Cornet

About the Model 184SML

Vincent Bach combined his unique talents as both an accomplished musician and a talented 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. The Bach 184 series short model shepherd's crook cornets are a natural fit for all ensembles from community bands to British style brass bands.


The Bach 184SML Stradivarius Series Bb Cornet follows the traditional shepherd's crook short model design. The Shepherds crook bell design provides a darker sound that is popular with British brass bands. The .459" medium-large bore promotes an ease of response. The one-piece hand-hammered professional bell produces a warm sound with ample projection. The silver-plate finish provides a controlled brilliance to the overall sound. The 1st valve trigger allows for quick and accurate adjustments. The 184SML cornet is a well rounded instrument at home in multiple musical settings.
