I've had this horn for a week, and I love it! The valve is quick, responsible, and QUIET! The response is fast and true, and this is the easiest blowing 42 I have played. I play concert band, orchestra, big band, and trombone ensemble music, and this will be my go-to horn for all but the jazz, I think. The sound is bright, not heavy like my old 42. But the valve system is tremendous. And I am female, so I appreciate that the reach on this is not huge...I can set up and just use it. Did I say I was in love?
