Pros: Well built horn. Wonderful dark, rich sound. Solid slots
Cons: Some problem with valves getting broken in properly

 
Got it at a used price. Must have been a store demo horn.
I choose this horn because I like the sound copper-belled horns give....similar to CONN copper bells but projects better. I play a fairly small Parduba MP and this horn gives me a dark, rich sound as a soloist and also blends in with the section well. Slots really well.....no missed notes.
To be honest, the valves have given me some fits in getting them broken in. I get a slow response sometimes when not expecting it. Hope they improve. Otherwise, very pleased. I also agree with posts from Tim Wendt on some trumpet discussion boards about how it plays.
Very striking appearance. Everyone wants to know what I have.

Pros: Well built. wonderful darkish tone due to copper bell
Cons: Some valve issues

 
Gives me that darker sound with a small Parduba MP that I was looking for. Similar to CONN Coprion bells sound. Well built horn. Perfect mouthpiece gap. Slots very solidily. I never miss a note. First two valves stick some. could be valve oil? Seems a little stuffy above high E. Otherwise, best horn I've played as a soloist and blend in well with rest of section.
