    where havn't I lived?
    Hey everyone,
    I know this may seem trite, but I am looking for input, opinions, suggestions, or otherwise for an after market valve rebuilt kit. Not just the standard with felt pads but maybe cork or even rubber pads. (the guides are for a Strad valve block)

    I am open to any ideas.

    The water key springs pictured are not Bach springs. Bach springs are much stronger. I often use neoprene bottom washers, and also replace the 3rd slide retaining bolt set screw with a stainless steel one. If the water key corks are "cork" then you will need some adhesive for them (preferably shellac).

    P.S. looking through this site makes me wonder if my prices are too low.

    according to some folks techs are not supposed to eat - they should spend any free time not actually working on horns answering emails and making phone calls. lol
