    I mentioned in a PM that the valves were noisier than any I have heard, and it sounds like a friction noise. I also asked if Claude had tried any other oils, like traditional petroleum valve oil....

    What did you wash? If it was just the valves, I suggest you need to rinse out the entire horn with dish soap. I have often experienced a situation where my valve-wiping rag would come away with black...
