    I have a Littmann Master Cardiology Black Edition on order. I figured it would be an investment and an incentive as well. My instructor has warned me to hold on to it when I go for clinicals, or it may "walk away".

    YES hold onto it. Did you have it engraved (laser or other)? If not you might want to do it. I had my name put on the tubing and I'm considering having it engraved as well.

    I have to warn you...it can be LOUD . That's really a good thing in the end but when you are doing a lot of listening it hits you...this is loud. It's amazing how much you can hear.

    It's a nice stethoscope.

    For clinicals, I went with the Littmann Classic II. It was great for what I could afford. Now I'm a new nurse training into the CCU and I'm going to invest in the cardiology.
