My experience has been different. I own a CB50, now known as a G50, and although I have to pull the slides out because I play it on the BBb side, I am always getting complements about my tone and overall quality of sound, including tuning. It is a really good horn. I reversed the rotor so the extra two feet of piping is always open, and the 5th valve closes it. I use the fifth valve as a "cheater" valve, to help me out on difficult fingerings, and I am always listening to make sure I am in tune. Since I have no plans of switching completely over to CC, because I see no reason to, I will probably continue to use this setup for quite some time.
