Pros: the fat tone, good valves, and plays in tune
Cons: slotting in staff not always pinpointed

 
The nice heavy, fat tone was sure different that the brassy, loud tones of some other brands. I was amazed at how easy it blows and in tune without throwing slides. Above the staff playing was a really pleasant surprise. Articulation was fine. The only thing I didn't like was the inability to slot cleanly when moving around in scale. This was a used horn, but I sure liked it better than their EV models. Anyway, just my two cents worth.

Pros: Wow! what a pleasant surprise. Slotting was great, intonation was right on, and valves worked as fast as I needed. Upper register was amenable to changes in dynamics as readily as in staff. Slides were a really good fit,,not too loose, not too tight.
Cons: caps on the valves were a little off....especially on the third valve.

 
This is more horn than I expected. The slotting was as good as any good trumpet. The ability to change volume was an unexpected pleasure. It moved up and down the scales with ease. A lot of effort was not required to obtain the desired results. Although I would be reluctant to use it in a lead situation, it should blend well on the other parts. You won't have to work yourself to death to get what you want out of it. The valves are a good fit, and move with ease and speed. The slides are a nice fit, neither too tight nor too loose. A lot of horn for the money.

Pros:
Cons: terrible laquer!! hard to play intune

 
after buffet bought courtois the trumpet lost the material quality.
the lacquer sucks!! I've seen two trumpets that were bought new and the lacquer stared to peel off after two weeks!!!
good sound but not as good as the models they built before going under and having to sell they brand to buffet.

I would look into models previous 2004
