This results in a full bodied feel and sound. Great for those who like the free blowing reversed leadpipe but with core of sound from the standard weight models.

The R180S37 has a reversed lead pipe and 37 bell. This means the lead pipe goes into the tuning slide rather than the tuning slide into the lead pipe as is found on a standard lead pipe. This makes for a smoother transition for the air and reduced turbulence and resistance in the tube. Generally it is more free blowing. The 37 bell is a popular choice, it has a narrower bell taper than the 43 bell flaring more drastically towards the bell rim. This makes for a broad sound with great projection. A fantastic Symphonic instrument.
