    Thanks for all the replies and guidance. Maybe what's best is for me to just sell the CCAPS and not mess with the good thing that the 1525 is!

    Well, no, not necessarily. Instead of "all-or-nothing," experiment with one on each of the valves, then two on each pair of valves to see where the benefits of more centered tone give way to intonation issues, then go with what is your preference on balance: a little broader tone to assure intonation, or a more centered tone knowing that a particular note or notes may need lipping or other compensation.

    Oh I'm going to keep experimenting. I haven't had the caps that long. But I can certainly see that the option to forego them could be a viable one.
