Stethoscope What is a non-enhanced standard stethoscope for the CS?

They say in the video I have to use only a non-enhanced standard stethoscope. Well mine has double-tubing, not electronic and standard. I couldn't find any place online to say what exactly was allowed!!!

I don't exactly want to buy a new stetho (and crappier than what i already have) for 1 day and don't want to rely on their "limited stash" :P
I'm not being cheap or anything, but.......

Double-tubed stethoscopes are still OK and considered standard and they won't reject it.

Enhanced, means those stethoscopes that have electronic gadgets that augment the sounds or even in some case even suggest sound analysis (phonocardiographs).

The appropriate stethoscope for the CS exam has been discussed previously in several threads. See "similar threads" listed at the bottom of this page.
