    Is there a reason that nearly all Flugelhorns have vertical valves? I am thinking about purchasing a pro model but I would really prefer horizontal valves. Is there some advantage to the vertical valves? or is it just a habit that designers all follow?

    What do you mean by "horizontal valves" Do you mean rotary valves?

    I think he's referring to horizontal vs vertical slides.
