Pros: Ability to add on BIG bach bells
Cons: the screw for the slide stop on the 3rd valve cuts into your left hand. I removed the screw

 
Big sound for an Eb - especially with a cut down bach Bb bell. Played mostly Mahler on it. Good tuning when using the fourth valve - alternate fingering. Certainly not a schilke ... but this is half the price (new) of the 4 valve schilke

Given up playing the Bb and am using this 90% of the time.

Pros: Great sound and intonation.
Cons: 3rd slide ring needed to be fixed according with my hand position

 
Excellent e-flat trumpet for those who like large bore instruments. More orchestral sound. It sounds like a C trumpet. Intonation is fine. I think it would be better if I put a V. Bach bell, but Im not thinking about this now.
