    If the problem is medical, then I really like Barliman's reccomendation ... alot.
    Other options to medical issues, IMHO, an Old's model with an offset second valve or an older trumpet such as a COnn 22b that has been broke in and has a short valve stroke.
    When ever I have a student who pressed the valve improperly I use the Claude Gordon method of pressing down each valve hard. I have them use a metronome at a slow setting and then over emphasis the pressing of each valve.
