I have heard these new trumpets should be out and about now. If anyone gets their hands on one I'd like to hear some thoughts. I have heard everything from its the greatests trumpet ever built to its awful. I play on a Yamaha Malone full conversion C trumpet. It is a very old Mark II with a gold heavy bell. I think it is fantastic. I wonder how it compares to the new production Yamaha/Malones. Before switching to this trumpet I was playing on a Bach 229 25H.
