    Pretty horn...how do you like the underslung third valve slide..I was looking to try silver..I need a bright as possible...does Callet put amados on all the Simas? Why do trumpet makers use amados? Have a ever used an amado I liked? No! Anyway, I guess you are using are Scodwell all the time now...I say that based on trying one a few weeks ago...although maybe you like your WT just as much...there's good threads going on on the TH about both the WT and SIMA... Best, Lex... p.s. - Got a Superchops .460 silver you wanna sell?

    All three of my horns have Amados, as well as my flugel :) I guess I'm used to them. I used to play a Callet Jazz, I found the 3rd valve slide easy to adapt to. It helps that I don;t need to throw it as much as on other horns.
    As for bright, with a smaller mouthpiece the Sima gets as bright as I can take. In fact as a lead player I usually stay with a Warburton m cup. I have no problem projecting. I do have to choose a single horn to go with, and they're all excellent horns, imho.
