Buttery-smooth valves, superb craftsmanship, incredibly beautiful finishes, .470 lead pipe, 5 1/2 bell, amazing projection, and free blowing.
I compared it side-by-side with a Bach Strad and a Yamaha Zeno. I played aggressively and technically in all registers, with all three horns, and noted that both Bach and Zeno had sound that was centered and focused. The only caveat to this is that I have always played a Yamaha 6335 MV horn previously.
I don't know if the large bore and/or the large bell has anything to do with the sound of the ZeuS 1000 Olympus professional Trumpet, but I could imagine that it might. Don't shy away from this beautiful horn, just be aware of the few things I've mentioned.
