    Does anyone know if the valve block on the b flat classica is the same as a large bore Elite?

    Are the bottom caps and top caps interchangeable?

    Also the finger buttons

    I can't think of a manufacturer who changes the valve caps and buttons per model. Too much to keep track of. The slides won't fit different bore sized horns though.

    Mark Curry's site has Stomvi and VRaptor bottom caps as the same for all models. Couldn't get to the finger button and top cap section to see if the same held true.

    Normally The Classica and the Elite are a ML bore. For either to be a large bore trumpet they would need to be special ordered.

    The finger buttons, valve bottoms and top caps should be interchangeable.

    Without knowing what you are attempting to do it is a bit difficult to answer this question. If the Classica is a ML and the Elite is a large bore there are going to be several compatibility issues.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact us we will be happy to help.

    The reason I'm asking is I've ordered a swe trim kit from Jason Harrelson

    I have a Stomvi b flat classica, but was thinking of buying a large bore Elite

    And was wondering if the kit would fit both

    It should fit both. Enjoy! One thing; you might want to check your valve ports when you make the switch. Any time you change these parts it can effect the valve port alignment. Any aftermarket trim kit can change this aspect of the valve action. Good Luck. ☺
