Review Date: 1/3/2005 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $2,000.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: well centered tone, not sharp
Cons: none

In my opinion more free blowing than a standard Strad (one brace less?) with a wonderful, centered tone at the whole range. I didnīt like the Omega (too bright and with quite more resistance) but that oneīs different, even it might be the same philosophy.

Pros: well centered sound at the whole range
Cons: none

I play now this trumpet since about two years and compared it with a lot of others. I have to mention, I also had a lot of others before but the VBS1 seems to be the one Iīll keep playing. Itīs not that tight as a Strad ML37, at least the bell is wider and features the thick, centered sound of a Stradivarius at the whole range. I canīt feel or hear any disadvantage because of the two-piece bell.
The manufacturing quality is better than on some Strads Iīve tested. So best value for itīs price.
