New bell design
A new bell design contributes to optimum resistance for a powerful tonal core and accurate slotting. The new design also enhances playability in the upper register.
Thinner Valve casing and pistons, modified angle of branch tube (knuckle)
Thinner valvecasing and pistons, as well as the modified angle of the branch tube (knuckle) result in improved response and provide the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
1st Slide Button
The button on the 1st slide serves to fine-tune the blowing resistance for optimum control.
Improved Water Key
The height of the main slide water key gutter has been increased for optimum resistance, and the ends of the water key spring have been curled for improved response.
