I purchased a 3/4 Rudy last spring. As a recreational player, I never thought I would have a horn of this quality and I am very happy with it. My wife describes the tone as "sounding like a bass French Horn" which says it is a bit different from the 12 other models I triend and she listened to. The articulation is wonderful and the intonation is quite good; particularly if I ever get used to using the trigger. I can't play as loud as I did on the piggy it replaced but I can play a lot softer and keep the tone and intonation good. The valves were good and fast except for the fifth which required a linkage adjustment. After the adjustment was made, it is equal to the other four.
In short, I paid a little more than I intended to but I got a lot more horn.
