I just bought this. It’s a step up for me. Wonderful action, smooth sound.
I don’t have the 44H. The literature says that the 44H has three mouthpieces. The 44Hv2 has two of those, so it seems that one was dropped and not substituted. The same floppy tube should have come with the 44H.
I have no complaints. And Liberty Bellows had an amazing price.
