    Apparently, the angled valves make it easier to hold. I have heard good things about these trumpets, but i've never seen one.

    The Selmer Radial was Selmers response to the offset second valve of the Olds Recording. I believe Maurice Andre did have some imput into the design. It was supposed to be more natural for the player. Surprisingly it also helped improve intonation of their horns.
