    Does anyone know if Yamaha uses the same spring for all Bb trumpets?

    They use the same springs for all trumpets, but they have different springness. They have light and heavy and normal. Light is the weaker and heavy is stronger

    Yamaha have one spring which they say that they use in all piston trumpets, cornets, and top sprung flugelhorns. The part number is A0141070.

    Just play louder. The horn is not suffering, those around you don't hear it and the audience doesn't either.

    There is NOTHING that can break or hurt your playing by a spring rubbing against its holder.

    A decent tech can fix this in seconds.

    The horn is stil new. Take it to the dealer wher you bought it and have them check it out. If they are selling Yamaha Wayne Bergeron trumpets, they will be able to determine the problem.

    To oil the valve you removed the top cap and pulled it up. Then, most likely, you didn't put it back in exactly right (the top cap could be loose). But the store which sold you an EXPENSIVE trumpet will hellp you if you take it back.

    All this forum dialog is a waste of time compared to just taking it back in.

    Actually, if the poster had a decent teacher, they would carefully switch the springs on valves 2 and 3 and see if the "noise" wandered. If yes, fix, if no - analyse.

    You know, I dont even think you can do this but if it was needed could he just order a new valve or do they need to fit it to his horn?

    :-PThis thread is ridiculously long for the issue -- I find it comical.
    Options:
    1) Do you know how to fix it? (No) Move to step 2
    2) Do you know someone that can fix it? (Probably) Take it to them. (Teacher or tech)

    Solves all problems!
    If you don't care about it, just do what Rowuk says and play louder, as long as it's not affecting the valve movement.

    Hoorah!

    Add -- if the answer to step 2 is "No"...
    3) Go find someone that can fix it!
