“The slide arrived this morning and it is everything I hoped for.  I reckon there was something wrong with the original slide on my Strad, it just blew unusually tight.  The M/K square yellow brass slide alleviated that tightness while still giving the right kind of resistance to create the characteristic Bach “sound” and articulation.  My trumpet is simply easier to play, it feels like it had a problem and now that problem is gone. Thanks for making a great product with great attention to detail.”
