    That implies that there was some small piece of dirt stuck in the casing. Clean your valves out so it doesn't happen again.

    Did you move the hair band to the other side of the valve? Maybe it pushed the dent back up...

    Just did. The weird thing is that I gave my horn a bath 2 weeks ago.

    All it takes is one bag of nuts or a pizza and the best baths are no saving grace. Actually in Austria you may have some Kaiserschmarrn or Sachertorte stuck in the valve.............

    Thanks Rowuk, It's breakfast time here....[​IMG]...just what I needed to visualise.
    Carry water and rinse after meals before playing the horn

    Clean and inspect is always the first move - perhaps it was not seated correctly,

    To hold my third valve slide in place on my cannonball I use a piece of clear elastic monofilament from my daughter's beading kit.
    Even though there is a stopper to prevent the slide from coming right off, I often play with one hand (playing and directing at the same time) and the third slide would go out to the stopper and then if I went to play with the third valve I was often terribly flat.

    ...Same with Plunger or Wah-Wah. A rubber band works as well.

    Like said above, not for silver finish. I've ruined the finish on one mouthpiece by keeping it next to rubber. Never again.
