Pros: nice tone, free blowing horn, responsive
Cons: poor fit and finish, intonation problems

 
I am reviewing the MV3, which has a lightweight 5" bell. It has a nice warm tone and blows freely, but I found myself wrestling the horn to play in tune. The tuning slide was so loose, it was practically sliding off of the instrument out of the box. If you can try a couple, you might find a good one. The one I tried was a lemon -which was quickly returned.
