Valve Alignment

The easiest way to think of how valve alignment affects sound is to think about what happens to the sound when you half-valve a note: You lose the highs in the sound as well as the lows in the sound. If your valves are out of alignment it is as though they are half-valved all the time but, instead of being half the valve, maybe it's a 32nd of an inch.

Once your valves are lined up properly, you will get the full performance and sound your horn was designed to give.
