Restoring my 1968 Bach Strad Bb Trumpet

This is my dad’s good friend Donny Ray and the original owner of the 1968 Bach Strad.

Donny Ray was a rock musician back in the day.  He became an Aerospace Engineer & recently retired to the mountains of Western North Carolina.  In late 2015 he graciously passed the Bach on to me.  It is a GREAT horn. I love playing it &  can not thank him enough for this horn!

I am going to have the Bach completely restored and probably silver plated.  I thought it would be fun to share this process with my readers.  Tomorrow I will write about who I chose to restore the 1968 Bach Strad.   Iphone Pictures 2_15_2016 508
