The diaphragm & drum configuration have been enhanced to optimize sound conductivity. In addition, a special chestpiece key is included for easy care and maintenance. Lifetime Limited Warranty.
The original Rappaport Sprague stethoscope was arguably the best acoustic stethoscope ever produced, equaling or surpassing today's top of the line models . Most copies are just plain junk, but this version is VERY close to the original. Some criticize the Rappaport Sprague, claiming noise artifact from the two tubes rubbing. This really isn't a problem unless you are actually walking while using the scope. It's not only a great scope, it's an iconic piece of medical history.
Cheep material chest piece,(it could be brass instead), tubes short and sensitive to touch, diaphraghm useless unless you change to a flat one. The bell suprisingly produces crisp and clear sound at heart and even lung sounds and I tried all theree on different patirenst. It would be zero stars but the bell makes for five so we come to three stars overall.
