This horn is the most amzing professional trumpet I've ever played!!!!!!!! I went to eclipse to try out one of their horns and found that this horn was supreme!!! The special solar bell is made of nickel with a brass flair and has no beaded ring on the bell so it just rings!! (seriously, if you flick it it just rings!) Originally designed as a lead player's trumpet, Eclipse were surprised to discover that as well as a sizzling top register, often adding a couple of notes to your range, it has a dark focused broad sound in the middle and low register. The eclipse valves, needless to say, are flawless, and the horn will sing at any volume! I never thought that a professional trumpet would make such a difference to my playing, but it's just easy to get a beautiful sound every time!!! I 100% reccomend this horn, and will make a bold claim that it is better than any other Bb trumpet on the market, including a monette! All the top british players are playing one these days!!!!

Pros: Amazing ringing sound (sizzling high, dark and focused low) great valves, amazing looks!
Cons: Valves need oiling daily, black gunge comes out of valve block

Re-reviewing my horn, i have a few things to say about it. The sound and finish is great on this horn, and very easy to play. Really amazing. Having had it now for 2 months my valves still really haven't worn in, and it seems to be leaking black gunge, but other than that it's great!
