Pros: nice valves, fast and smooth. feels good in your hand, well balanced, could be because of it's weight. I like the size of the bell
Cons: light weight, maybe that's a good thing(for some). Only comes in brass. Hard to find in the U.S.

First note I played, it made a big impression on me. It's free blowing with a nice round fat sound. The weight really is a big difference compared to my Kanstul 1500 but the horn feels good in my hands. The weight maybe a good thing for long gigs(I just hope it doesn't crush in my gig bag). It slots very well and the intonation is right on. The valves are smooth like butter not fast like my Zeus but you know it's a pro horn. I wish this horn came in a brushed finish, I like that look. Upper register? No problem, it screams, fat and full. I tried to push it but no matter how much I push it, it didn't break up. The sound just got bigger, amazing. If you have the chance, you need to try it or if you have the chance to buy it, buy it! It's a great horn to own. I bought this horn for my wife for Christmas(she doesn't play an instrument), but if she don't want it, I know she'll give it to me. )

Pros: Huge sound, great intonation, free-blowing

I own pro trumpets by most of the major manufacturers, and several custom horns as well. My EM stacks up to any of them. I love it!
