I agree with Kelly. I had an older 5/4 rotary (the so-called "tall bell CC") and it was great. The sound was very dark and the projection was amazing. The horn practically played itself. I now have an HB-21 which is probably better for all around playing, but doesn't come close to the sound of the old horn. I did have trouble with the valves on the old one (especially in the summer) but the new valves are perfect.
