..........My CarolBrass CTR-506R arried three days age. I can't believe I got an instrument of this quality for the price I paid. I know this will sound like hyperbole, especially as regards a mid-priced horn, but this is the best trumpet  I've ever played ( for me).Here are my first impressions: Fit & Finish: CarolBrass is superbly put together. Attention to detail is excellent; valve caps and bottoms, water keys, rings and hooks are all tasteful and attractive...........They also have a nice heavy-duty feel...nothing cheap or chintzy here......Valves: Fantastic!!.....I would't say they're faster than my Bach, but they are smoother, much quieter.......Tone:I wasn't sure any horn could improve on my Bach's sound BUT CarolBrass does. It has a thick, rich core that I never realized I was missing until now. I get a rich, slightly dark orchestral sound when I aim for one.....I had planned on designating the CraolBrass CTR-506R as my "Orchestral" horn...Slotting: That was mentioned as another strength of CarolBrass horns, and I have to agree. With this horn, I am nailing the center of the pitch more consistently than ever before.....also I found it easier to slur between partial. Slurring from C in the staff up a third to E, for instance sounds much cleaner on this horn......Responsivness: I think this horn is liverlier than my Bach.......the CarolBrass I feel my attacks are cleaner and articulation.....Finally Conclusion:I can't find much (anything) to criticize on this horn. It is fantastic instrument. For me, it beats any production horn I tried. I did not find a Bach or Yamaha that fit me like this horn does.By BedfordTrumpeter on Trumpetherald
