    I am a huge fan of the Littman series. Depending on the job, they have a stethoscope for you.....believe me.


    for more info see above.

    I have a Littmann Cardio III. Wouldn't trade it for anything in the world except for maybe a Master Cardiology Littmann scope.

    I have a Master Cardiology 'scope that I bout back in 1995 and it still works great, although it went back for a warranty repair a few years ago. The turnaround time to fix a bad tubing was very quick.

    There are often some deals to be had on these at the shows and conventions; I got mine from a dealer at a show in Harrisburg, PA (FireExpo). The dealer was Henley Board, based in Delaware at the time, and the price was incredible. They brought a ton of them to the show and sold out on the second of the three days. Any sales after that were shipped (no charge) to the customers within a couple of weeks.

    I use mine only for "in-house" work; when working the streets, I use a plain old Sprague.
