    Do you have brass deposits on the valve?
    May the God of Israel, who is very real, and who sent the Messiah and the Savior that we so desperately need so that we can be reconciled to our Creator and live forever with the Three-In-One God, bless you today!

    We have to admit that there is nothing in the geological records that runs contrary to the views of conservative creationists."

    Re: Slow valve recrudescence

    Hi folks,
    I found the source of the problem. The valve is very slightly loose along the trumpet axis, and when my finger is pushing down from even slightly behind the centre line it is slow on the return, but directly down or biased towards the front it works fine. This is repeatable now, and I don't know why I didn't spot it before when I experimented with off centre actuation.
    I'm not sure what I'll do in the long term yet, but for now will be paying more attention again to the way I play. Probably need to drop the right elbow a bit.

    Thanks for your help!
