    CTR 5000 YST S

    This horn plays better than any Bach or Yamaha I've ever owned. Excellent intonation and ease of playing. Valves are like butter. You can play legit or jazz with this horn depending on the mouthpiece you use with it. The price is right - quality trumpet that won't break the bank. Love this horn!

    This lightweight trumpet really surprised me. As a pro going through my own horn safari over the past four years, I've bought/sold/traded many B-flat trumpets. This will be perfect for playing musicals! Lots of life in the sound (highs/overtones/brilliance), excellent intonation, easy response...basically my most fun horn to play, and I have some that are worth $4-6K!!!! This is also an excellent price on this model. Grab one before they're gone!

    This horn is a Bach and Yamaha killer! I've owned and played many high-end, custom boutique horns as well as Bach and Yamaha, and this CB is an incredible player. I just had to oil the valves and put a little valve oil on the slides, since it was probably sitting in the Dillon Music warehouse for awhile. A friend kept telling me to get a CB, and I knew I wanted a lightweight for pit work, and this will a great job. I prefer the D-shaped slide only slightly better than the rounded slide, but I could use either. I just get a little more bite to the sound in the extreme low and high registers with the D slide. And I don't find the sound to be overly bright. It would easily work in a symphonic section of Bach and Yamaha tpts.
