Thread: Valve 1 gives a D that is too low

    Valve 1 gives a D that is too low

    Recently my instrument had to stay in a cold car. I believed that condens occured. I cleaned my Besson Prestige (2003) the way it has to be cleaned and put everything on its place afterwards. Since then, the D with valve nr. One is a little to low, also compared to the other tones. The trigger can't be made shorter. What can cause this problem? Thank you for reply!

    Could this problem occur because of older valve pad at the bottom of te valves? (Next day. 24 hours of thinking later)

    Are you absolutely sure that you didn't inadvertently switch the pistons in the valves? Accidentally switching 1 and 3 seems to be the most popular mistake most of us have made at times.

    Hello Gary, I am pretty sure. I once did that, when I cleaned my first instrument. 😀 Lucky me: my husband solved this puzzle. I will check this for sure! Thank you!
    Thank you Gary, this was the problem. Shame...shame.... 😉 I am glad to have my instruments sound back!

    No shame. I'm glad it was such a simple fix.
