The Eclipse Large Bore, Light Yellow Bell trumpet is the easiest blowing one I've ever played. Very little resistance and feels like the notes are being pulled out at times - it's that easy playing!! Valves are fast and accurate. Tunable bell allows for continuous airflow from mouthpiece to valves. Performs brilliantly in all ranges. Versatile and can used for classical, jazz or studio work. It looks amazing and plays just as good as it looks.
Cleaning the lead pipe can be a bit of a pain, but that's a very small price for such a quality piece of work. I also had to send it back after a few months to get the tuning slide tightened and a replacement bell was put on after the plating started to crack around the edge, but this was done free of charge.
It is an excellent instrument, and although it is a bit pricey, it's well worth the money. You also get excellent customer service from the guys at First Class Brass, and I cannot praise them highly enough.
