Hi there: can anyone tell me about the playing qualities of a 3-valve St. Petersburg ? I see that they are for sale at a reasonable price at JimLaabs in Wisconsin -- apparently the same size as the 4-valve model. I have played the 4-valve model in North Carolina and really liked the sound / characteristics. Does anyone have any experience with both the 3 & 4-valve models ? How does the 3-valve version play ? Any suggestions / comments on the instrument would be appreciated !
