Hello everyone, this is my first post and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on a good stethoscope for clinicals. At orientation we were told not to go too cheap or too expensive. Does anyone have opinions from good experiences in clinicals? Thanks for any advice.

I would like to emphasize what others have said about the Tags, Labels, or Engravings; There totally worth it. I wish my iPhone had a "Find my StethoscopeTM" app
I have the 3M Littmann Cardiology. I had to use the pediatric side as a covered bell, because my pup got chew happy on it- but I guess it works better for ER now. I want a new one- but an iPad Mini got chosen instead, so that's on my wish list too(however not pink, Lol!)
I would also have to admit that the first two semesters I used that ugly dual tubed monstrosity that comes with the scissors, pin light, etc,... Until I auscultated with a friend's Litt.
