That's funny that you had two of them and you put whole-step 5th valves on each. I'm doing the same with the one I purchased last year from Tony Clements. I'll be shipping the horn to the factory sometime this summer to have some overhaul work done and to change the current 5th valve to a right-hand, flat whole-step configuration. I have to agree with your assessment of the 184 overall. This one I have plays very well. I haven't had a chance to do any solo work on it yet but I have a feeling it will be perfect for that. I've used it primarily in the quintet so far and the guys just love it. Of course, it begs the question: why did they stop making them??
My opinion for what it's worth...
