Pros: Fantastic top sprung valves
Cons: slippery slotting

I do like the tone with the included Conn 7C mouthpiece, but, like it even better with a vintage King #36 deep vee mouthpiece. The valve action is even lighter and faster than any of my Olds trumpets or cornets.

Pros: great valves
Cons: water accumulation in the tuning slide

The top sprung valves remind me of the valves on my 38B. They are slick and fast.

Mine is USA built in 1977. The horn is constructed pretty well. Intonation is good. I use a Schilke 15A4 and like the sound I get.

The tubing on the leadpipe is routed differently from other cornets and water accumulates in the main tuning slide past the water key, requiring the removal of the slide to empty the water. Other than that, no other problems.

I have owned it for 3 years and am happy with it. I use it for small ensemble work and solo gigs. Definitely worth more than what I paid for it.
