Thread: Yamaha (coated) valve springs

    Right. Different instruments have different amounts of space between the bottom of the piston and the bottom cap. Yamaha springs are fairly light in Yamaha instruments, but if your instrument is designed for a longer spring, the Yamaha springs are going to be bordering on unusable.

    They work well in my Mack Brass, but I've had to put a couple of sets in since I bought the horn because, as mentioned above, the plastic eventually comes off. They're cheap though, and my local music store always has them in stock.

    That makes sense I guess, Yamaha and stencils based on them would work with the Yamaha springs.

    Guess I will have to stick with longer springs.
