Very special heavy weight trumpet, many classical professional player like it. The old model number is CTR-658R. ......I now have a Carol CTR-658R, and like it very much. It is relatively heavy, with a solid, double thick leadpipe, and the blow is a little more open than the Legend(CTR-766R). It comes with a square tuning slide (like a Strad), and I 've got a rounded slide coming (to open up the blow a little more). It has a very nice tone...blends well with the B Strads sitting around me, and slots well. I took it to rehearsal the other night, and everyone who listened to me on the CTR-658R chose it over my S Forte, which was surprising to me because from behind the two horns, they sound very similar...though the blow is different with the S being more open......

Pros: Many. Fantastic build, easy blow, huge sound, easy upper range... It's all good!
Cons: No complaints here!

This horn is a jewel; easy blow, huge sound, fat tone, even register, solid slotting... I can't think of any detriments - none at all. I have had a 628R, similar but slightly lighter (another Carol Brass trumpet I really liked); this horn, while heavier, is similar but with a slightly deeper, darker, fatter tone. The slotting on this horn is tremendous - very solid slots. If you tend to crack notes on occasion - meet here your lifesaver. Really - this horn is easy to play and rewards you with a marvelous tone and easy open range.
