Hello Tara, I play both the 44 and the Hyper. The 44 HP has a more solid tone where-as the Hyper is more brassy. They both play excellent and are very air tight. I don’t know what kind of music you play so I can not suggest a specific one for you. I play jazz, if you want to hear the two check ou my Monsters of Melodica videos “Giant Steps” where you will here the Hyper and then listen to “Sugar” where the 44 Hp is featured. I love them both and used them both equally.
