Thread: Heavy Valve Cap

  1. Heavy Valve Cap

    I was wondering if there is a possibility to get one of the heavy valve caps from the sterling virtuoso? I believe it fits to my sovereign and my prestige. ydave has one on his sovereign as you can see in the euphonium comparisson post (the pictures with te Miraphone M5000). Does anyone know about the availability?

    Euphonium: Adams E3 Custom Series (SS Bell)
    Trombone: Benge 175F

    Heavy Valve Cap

    If Besson and Stirling don't use the same thread pitch for their valve caps, the heavy caps won't fit. Have you established that the regular valve caps are interchangeable? (I assume the heavy caps screw on to the valve casing and replace the regular caps rather than fit over/attach to the regular caps.)

    Paul Rigget at Sterling did one for me as I was looking at his euphs at the time, but you have to have a spare 4th valve bottom cap to base it on first.
    I don't know if Paul has time to do them for other euphs generally or not, you would have to ask him.

    Current Euphs:
    Besson Prestige (German)
    York Eminence
    Boosey & Hawkes Sovereign (Round Stamp/ Globe)
    Boosey & Hawkes Imperial
    Plus an attic of old classics in various states of repair!

    Previous Euphs:

    Geneva Symphony
    Wilson 2900 with Eminence leadpipe
    Sterling Virtuoso (300 mm heavy red brass bell)
    Cortios 167 II
