How does it compare to the Littman Classic II Infant stethoscope?

For many years, I used an inexpensive "adscope". It worked fine. ADC Adscope 605 Infant Stethoscope Then I got a Littman. Also great. Probably the Littman was a little better.
Make sure your name is on it. Mine had an allergy band w/a tag saying, "If you steal this stethoscope, your loins will go numb". That worked, esp w/male residents.
