Purchased my early "graduation present" to myself today

  1. Littman™ II S.E. Lightweight

    In Ceil Blue:

    At : www.jascouniform.com

    I'd planned on getting the Cardiology III ($159) because i loved the sound quality. But i could hear just as well on this style when i test drove it in the ER the other night. Plus it didn't weigh a ton either.

    What i have now is:

    I like it but it's a little heavy, plus it's heavy enough on the one end that i smack myself on the chest hard enough to have to take a minute to sit down :imbar

    Those are nice stethoscopes. I am getting an Ultrascope from my cousin as a gift.

    My graduation gift to myself is going to be a shiny red convertible (as in sports car). :hatparty: Woo-hoo!!

    That's the stethoscope I have - I really like the shape of the chestpiece.

    I have it in the ceil blue too - enjoy, and congratulations on upcoming graduation!!

    Thats cool, congrats. I just bought a new Littman Master Classic on ebay for $50. Saved myself between 25-40. I heard its pretty good I hope so

    I can't WAIT to talk about my graduation present to myself when it's my time. One year left! I hope it goes fast. I haven't even thought about what I'd get for myself.

    I'm in the market to buy a nice, new stethoscope (love that littman lightweight). I'm petite however and 28" scope is way too big and looks plain funny. Is it OK to cut the tubing to make it an acceptable length? Will it effect the sound quality? I have a cheapie one that I cut and the sound is moderate to poor (probably b/c the scope is just cheap!!!) Do specialty websites sell smaller versions? Thanks in advance. Congrats to all those graduating in May!!!
