Thread: John Packer Valves

  1. #11
    How new is the horn? Have you cleaned the valve and the cluster thoroughly after the horn arrived? Also what valve oil are you using?

    I feel that I've seen this issue before (mere deja vu?), but I'm try to recall when it was and what was done to resolve it.

  2. After a full day of trying to figure it out. I managed to change the felts and this was the outcome.

    Still waiting for the video to render, but I'm anxious to see it.

    The bounce you get on the downstroke I THINK is your own doing. You finger should push the valve all the way down, and if you do that the valve can't bounce. In any case, you WANT the valve to come back up as soon as there is no finger pressure.

    That doesn't really look any different from before. I didn't think it had anything to do with the felts anyway. To me it looks like the springs are too weak, just like another poster wondered. This is why I asked if the original Packer springs were doing this or if it was when the change to SM springs was made. IF the SM springs are for Baritone or Tenor Horn instead of Euphonium this could possibly result in the springs being too weak or too short. But really, bottom line, this is a brand new horn and you are doing way too much on your end that could possibly void any warranty protection you enjoy for all that money spent. Contact your dealer pronto and let them sort things out for you?

    I think that looks a lot better
