AN INSTRUMENT FOR ALLDesign wise, the valves are interchangeable. They have kept the traditional design, unscrewing at the bottom, and the springs have a good resistance. Ergonomically, this plastic instrument is a dream. The shape promotes good posture and good hand positioning; allowing people with different hands size and shape to comfortably grip the instrument.
