Over the past few years, Bach has re-committed themselves to building the world's best trombones. The changed many of the techniques at the factory in order to yield horns that are truly worthy of the "Stradivarius" name. Sadly, many people on the internet will attempt to misinform customers saying that the Strad is made in China, in order to discourage the customer from purchasing. This is NOT true.

Bach Stradivarius trombones are still to this day, 100% Made in the USA. They are made in the factory in Elkhart, Indiana where they have been made for decades.

In fact, Bach has recently started using a new revolutionary manufacturing process for their slide tubes yielding a slide unlike anything we have ever seen from Bach trombones. Recently, we ordered in a 42BO for a customer and were so impressed, that Dave Kessler sent the following email to Tedd Waggoner, the factory manager for Bach:

I (Dave Kessler) personally go over every Bach Strad trombone that comes into our store to make sure that they are up to the caliber that we advertise them to be. Honestly, every now and then we do get a Strad that has a problem. When this happens, that horn is sent immediately back to the factory. We will only keep horns that are up to the level that we find appropriate with the Stradivarius name.
