In short the Holton Stratodyne is built to satisfy the most exciting and those who want the best money can buy. To own a stratodyne is to know the pleasrure, confidence and pride of owership which go with possession of a truly fine musical instrument.

I have a Stratodyne, that my father bought for me
in fifth grade (circa 1960) . It is an excellent trumpet. I need to find a new bell for it because
mine was damaged. Great playing horn !!

Pros: Virtuosity, sensitivity, tonal clarity
Cons: Rarity

Very few trumpets possess the magic coloring of tone at all values of volume and range as I have found of the Stratodyne. If it was the proverbial "last out the door between my 49 Committee , 60 Recording or the Stratodyne....well its tough because of finance alone, but it stays afterthe Recording.
