I've played all 3 of these horns and have to agree with Lee on the MW45slp. Buy a CC tuba with a god high register and you have the same thing. It's just too big and you have to beat it into submission from my standpoint. The rudy 5/4 F is a great instrument. It's very resonant and comes alive in your hands when playing; it has a very comfortable and open low register; and it has the traditional "rudy" sound with excellent intonation. I went with the Miraphone F because it was easier to play - for me, and it had the sound that I was looking for.
