    Great info. Did you by any chance check the valve alignment with a borescope after changing the finger buttons?

    A quick alternative for checking valve button effects would be to pull the first valve's compensating slide (on the back of the valve casing) and see if the ports align when you push 1 down. (This assumes #1 has a removable slide; not all horns do.)
