Title: I have a Omega Bach straight tenor and I can't find any info on it
Post by: Jbontrager0425 on Mar 15, 2017, 07:09PM
I have a Bach Omega, which I think is a student trombone, and I can't seem to find any info. this instrument. I've had it for about 5 years now and I plan on upgrading to a F-att. tenor. The pictures are down below and the only serial number-like thing i have found is on the bell, 193*** I'm leaving the last three off because I just want to be safe. if you need, more info I'll be glad to give you what I can. One last thing I want to note is that I have all the original items that came with it: mouthpiece, bell, slide and case.

Omega was the name given to the TB-200 for a while.  It was a step-up instrument (the student horn was the TB-300 which succeeded the Bundy).

If you like the way it plays, there is an F-attachment version.

As far as I know, the TB-200 is still in the Bach line even though it's not called Omega any more.

I'm not sure of the age but there are serial number charts.  I'd hazard a guess that it's a late 2000s horn since my 1991 Bach 36 has a 91xxx serial number.
