Pros: fit and finish, valves, great intonation and tone
Cons: none

Better suited for the Brass-Band than any other make incl. the famous Schilke and Besson models. This model has all the right tools for you to be at your best. I suggest using a Kanstul BMV 7D Cornet mp. The overtones on this horn are exceptional and the slurring aspects are just as good. This horn sounds like a Spr. Eb should and not like another Bb just playing the higher notes....slotting is rock-solid ! Fit and finish is perfect and the 3rd slide linkage is perfect and easy to use for any left hand. The case is rock-solid and will protect your horn very well. If you are serious about playing the Eb spr. Cornet, please buy the best and you will have only one aspect to blame your playing on.....yourself ! - play well !!
