The MW website isn't very helpful when trying to determine the differences in the two horns. The only thing I can gather is that the 46 is the same as the 45 but with 6 valves and gold lacquered. The half-tone trigger is still present, and I believe the bore size is still the same. If I am not mistaken there are still 5 valves on the right hand, and the 6th and the trigger are on the left. What is the advantage of tha half-tone trigger if you have a 6th valve? I thought the trigger was a substitute for a 6th valve. Can someone that has played these horns please help me and determining what is really different, if they are very different at all.
