Valve Alignment
Mouthpiece Alterations
General Repairs



After a valve alignment, you should notice all of the benefits to some degree. Because horns are out of alignment in varying degrees, some benefits may be more noticeable than others.

Since alignment may affect the back pressure you feel, you should reevaluate your equipment such as heavy caps, cylinder reinforcers and mouthpiece gap as you may find a set-up that works even better.

 We encourage you to experiment with the gap after the alignment to help further dial in your equipment and optimize playability.
