Pros: Brilliant horn which cuts through easily
Cons: A bit meagre in the low register

After cleaning and subsequently oiling the valves, first action immediately yielded an amazing sound in the middle and high register, which put a big fat grin onto my face.The low register is not really what this horn is made for though.
The sound is pretty much on the bright side, as could be expected.
Forget the questionable 3C mpc this trumpet comes with, any decent mouthpiece will do.
I dig the extras too that you would not dare to get at that price level (1 square main tuning slide, the super thin finger buttons and three spare springs). Construction is flawless. The only thing is that the valve spring were unexpectedly noisy at first, but they settled quickly.
Deserves to be checked by everybody who is looking for a trumpet with a good response, the ability to lead and cut through. All in all a fantastic horn at an incredible price, and surely an outstanding allround player.
