In my experience, the problem with closed wrap horns - beyond the obvious problem of condensation from time to time - is that they have more solder points to get screwed up when getting built. But you look at some of the most coveted horns at the moment and they are closed wrap horns --- Mt. Vernon 36/42/50 & Elkhart 88Hs (and to some extent the straight versions of these).

That said, if you have a closed wrap horn that you don't like the way it plays... have a tech give it a look over.  I've done this to a variety of older horns and the results have been definitely worth it.  Some more minor than others, but some the change was unbelievable.

In my experience the 61x basses could benefit from some work if you donít know how it was handled beforehand. A colleague of mine had work done on his and they straightened out some stress in the wrap with much improvement. And I felt it could use less bracing. Fine horns though.
