Pros: Great sound and valves
Cons: None so far

I have the .464 bore with the A bell option. I have only had it two days but it is a good playing professional trumpet. I would recommend this over a Bach Strad 37 model if I had a choice. Everything on the horn is built with the highest level of quality. Intonation on this horn is dead on and slotting is great. It has short valve strokes so fingering is lightning quick. If you see one of these snatch it up.
