    I play on Soveriegn double plug bass trom wuth Hagmann valves.

    It had been suggested to New that I should try heavy valve caps


    Can someone explain to me in plain English what I should notice with the improved " stability, cite and protection"?

    I have them on my Rath (not because I chose them, but because they were fitted by the previous owner). Bring your bone on tour on Wednesday, and we can play around, see if it makes any difference that you notice and think it worth spending the cash on. They do change the balance of the thing slightly, which may or may not suit you. Or may be a matter of complete indifference.

    I think the main difference you will notice is that Michael Rath will have a slightly heavier wallet, and yours will be a bit lighter.

    Have you noticed any difference, Monsieur Spanquerre?
