Pros: Visitor
Cons: None

 
Incredible ease of blow, superb intonation. Has a sparkling tone, on the bright side, mine has a scratched lacquer finish that is gorgeous. A super honr for a minor price. GET IT!

Pros: Everything; simply everything.
Cons: Absolutely nothing negative to state.

 
This is easily one of the nicest playing trumpets I've ever had (I've had many Strad, Schilke, Yamaha, King, Conn, Reynolds and Kanstul trumpets). Valve and slide action is fantastic and the ease of play is ridiculous. I sold it thinking that I'd like to try the larger (72 style) bell by CarolBrass - but this horn fit me much better. I had the 628R but the models are the same; the 6280 is simply newer. A+ horn.

Pros: Fit and Finish, Beautiful and Balanced intonation, ease of play Great tone
Cons: Not the best lacquer quality

 
I've been playing this horn for about 2 years as my everyday all around horn. I bought it used in good shape. To me, this horn plays every bit as well as any Strad or Xeno I've ever tried. I love the feel of the horn in my hands. The fit and finish are top notch and it's really beautiful with Nickel, yellow brass and Gold brass. The lacquer was peeling unevenly, so I had it stripped to raw brass and it's beautiful in raw brass and doesn't even turn my hands green like other raw brass horns. It's on the heavy side, which I like, but it's not so heavy that it's difficult playing a long gig. The tone is beautiful and focused. It can light up in the upper register. The price, these horns are a pretty incredible value. I highly recommend it.
