    There is definitely a difference.
    The round not as bright and edgey as the stock slide, but it seems to be more even through the range. Its a little darker, but I haven't tried comparing the two in a big hall situation where i could really tell the distance difference

    Darker? Really! I was expecting the edge to clear but when you say "darker"do you mean more cornet and a little less trumpet?

    Which horn did you put the round slide on? Is it a heavier Bach or a light weight?

    umm, more like a heavier weight horn, not mellow

    Its a normal weight bach

    on a side note, I just had a lesson with an old teacher, he has had his strad since early 70s or so, and got a rounded slide, and has started playing it all over the place again. It had gone back into his stable but now its his favorite (again), said it evened everything out and "sings" more
