    Even with the most careful packing job, it is not uncommon for minor adjustments to be needed following shipping. Just have your tech give it the once-over. He/ she will be able to tell you if anything was due to more than just shipping bumps. If it was well set up leaving the seller, it should only need a couple minor tweaks.

    Have it checked over. Shipping can and will jostle stuff around no matter how well it was packed or how 'extreme' the cold/heat is during shipment.
    It may have been 'inspected' at the store, but that doesn't mean it was set up to your personal specifications.

    Alright thanks everyone I'll have to try and make it to my music store this week. Besides what I've said, the Pro One is a beautiful horn and i recommend it to all of you to at least try it out sometime.
