I like the string-based Strong Link system better than the B3 linkage system (from the 6801), so this instrument is right up my alley. It plays great, it tunes great, and has the perfect tone that I was looking for. All in all I'd give it six stars if I could.

I played one of these at a convention in 2010 and was highly impressed. The yellow brass version of the same horn, not as much. In 2013 I again had the opportunity to play both the yellow brass and the NS version, and again the NS version stood out. Plays well throughout the range, solidly built. I have since purchased the NS model as my primary instrument.
My only complaint is the stock case. It holds the instrument securely, but the form factor is large, and I find the overall design of the case to be awkward. After purchase, you may expect to want to spend more money later on a different case. Otherwise, this is a great instrument choice.
