    I have a Rath R9 with independent Hagmann valves F/Gb/D and would like to trade the valve section for a dependent valve section F/D. Valve section in perfect condition pics on request.

    just out of curiosity, why are you wanting to go to a dependent valve section?? is it an easier blow, less resistance? less back pressure? Im on independent and it seems to make some sections on our new test piece a lot easier!! granite variations. I did think to myself when I first saw it that it will be a little tricky for all those Bass troms on dependent set ups.

    I got this instrument 2nd hand so I took it as it was. I never use the Gb trigger on it's own and it sits against my neck which I don't like. I only ever use the 2nd valve on low B. Played on a dependent bass before I got the R9 and just prefer it, personal preference :wink:

    If you still have this valve section. Would you be interested in selling it?
