    So I don't have to return the horn right?
    Taking it to the shop would probably be a faster solution.

    Its not too good if it needs a new spring. It will work out better, but you dont seem like you will do that so have fun.

    Once they order the tune-up kit. They could get a new trumpet in the same amount of time.

    We don't know! The issue first needs to be diagnosed by someone competent in this field (I am too far away). Only after there is diagnosis, can there can be intelligent discussion about which remedy to use - reassembly, component replacement, component repair, instrument replacement etc.

    I'll stop by the music store this afternoon and see what they say. It just an annoyance, so I guess I could deal with it for a while and take it to the repair shop after the winter break.

    By the way, most of us repair shops carry yamaha springs (psst - I use them in the Jaeger-Diamond trumpets) and common things like valve guides.
