Pros: Excellent projection and intonation, reasonable sound growth and focused tone quality.
Cons: Valves are "sticky" and require constant lubrication/care.

 
The horn plays well with good projection. It is fairly bright, but does not over brighten when pushed, and the timbre is readily changed to accomodate the venue. Nice center to the play with intonation accomodation reasonable for a "C".
