Sterling Silver bell for quick response and projection, reversed tune pipe, dual tone gold and good valves.
Feels heavy in your hands.
I bought the 2070SGX Large bore model and the sound is fat, dark and sexy. The trumpet in my opinion is excellent for Jazz and can play very well on Sax section. I can't comment on the over all performance as compared to my vitage SIlvertones,Silversonic and Silver Flare response as the valves need to brake in, the horn looks brand new even though it was advertized as a used horn. I played a Silversonic Super 20 Synphony DB .468, Sylvertone MB .445, Kanstul WB .460, 67 Silver Flair .462 and the 2070 one after the other and asked my wife to blind judge the sound. She picked the 2070 and the Kanstul WB as far as sound. But then again I was playing some bossa, and a sexy dark sound is a must. Over all is a nice horn for the price and I think is a keeper for any King fans out there.
