    Hello
    I've got a new Bach TR650 trumpet recently.

    On the first valve cleaning I've notices there was a small burr inside mid hole of the first valve (link with picture is below)
    http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu6/den2042/CAM00118_zpsnrjyggxx.jpg

    I was able to remove the burr simply by my finger. But unfortunately the small bump inside the small circumference (inside the valve) remains. It is like half millimeter high and 2 millimeters long.

    So my question is what do I do next?

    Or more specifically, have you seen something like this before? Are there any negative impacts of such a thing on sound etc?
    Can I just leave it like this? Or should I worry about replacement?

    Thank you
    Denis

    You paid for a horn without defects. Return it.

    Definitely return the horn. Bach should stand behind their products

    Have you spoken with the supplier yet? This should be your first action.

    I asked exactly this question at musicstore.de (the place I've got it). Still waiting for the reply from them

    Thank you again guys for your advises. Musicstore.de agreed it was a defect. At the end it turned out all right. I've decided to upgrade to Yamaha YTR-2330
