    Adding to the pile, here is a photo of Wynton Marsalis trying a 4-valve picc. Notice (barely visible at this angle) that his left pinky is holding down the 4th valve.

    Seems like it is something closer to his left index? Looks like his left pinky and nearby fingers are holding the horn.

    Ann,

    I have owned both the King 2280 and Yamaha 321 that Rick makes reference to. For me, the King was far superior to the Yamaha. Has a large bore mpc, produced a huge and totally in tune sound and was very free blowing. Of the two, it’s definitely my choice, keep in mind, I’m certainly no virtuoso.
