Can anyone comment on the similarities or differences between a Denis wick 3c trumpet mp and the Arnold & Sons version ?

The Arnold and Sons is based on a Bach 3c.

IIRC the Wick "American classic" 3c is based on a Bach 3c also, but the regular 3c isn't.

Then the classic "which Bach 3c" question has to come up... Over the years the design has changed slightly quite a few times, and during certain periods they've been somewhat inconsistent too.

If your friend is using one or the other and likes it, it'd be wise to stick with it...
