The Willson Eb and F are essentially made from the same mold. They are the same size and weight. Paul Kryzwicki uses the rotary valve with Philly now and seems to love it. Once again, the F is rather large, as is the Eb. If a tubist watns a small, bright sounding instrument, this may be too much. However, the clarity and projection still tip the scales as they do on the Eb.
