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.
