Has anyone played and antoine courtois elite trumpet?  I’m looking at getting one but have only heard one opinion.

I’m not familiar with the “Elite”, but I heard an 80 year old former band director play an Evolution II once, and I swear that was the sweetest tone I’ve ever heard out of a trumpet - even amongst the high-end horns.

I’ve been playing my Elite C/Bb Trumpet for over 11 years now. It’s a great instrument and works great for all the different styles I play, from Disco bands to Chamber Music

I have been playing it for like 5 years, I usually do only disco on it, and it has become one of my favorites.

Is anyone familiar with the Model 111ML Courtois trumpet? Any info appreciated. I believe it is about 10 years old. Thanks.
