This is Rudy's most popular model. His size nomenclature (ie. 3/4, 4/4, 5/4) are slightly misleading. They are actually one size larger that their numbers dictate. The 3/4 CC is comparable to most 4/4 horns, and can hold its own in every role except the largest of groups. Its tone is sweet and very "Rudy". The ones I have played have been excellent. I would find one with the second valve kicker just to facilitate more intonation adjustment, should it be needed. A friend of mine has owned two previously and he swears by them. Hope you like them as much as he.
