Pros: Intonation and projection
Cons: Finding the "sweet" spots

I have owned this horn for 3 years now and I am happy to say that I intend on keep this one for life! This is catalogued as the N145 Bill Bell Model CC and for Mr. Bell to approve this horn at the time of its manufacturing already says something. It has a left-handed 5th rotor valve with an extension that can add a flat half step, although its rarely needed I appreciate the option. The intonation is great. One can easily adjust tuning since the horn is very well made. Projection is a breeze since it can deliver a huge sound. The low range takes very little to get used to. One has to find the "sweet" spots to really punch the low stuff. I can easily play Fountains of Rome or Ride of the Valkyries. By no means does that mean you should pass on this horn. I strongly recommend the Bill Bell Model CC, an excellent buy for a semi-pro.
