Hi all, is there anybody who has played one of the new York Bb basses. My band bought one a while ago and i've had nothing but problems with it. The plastic valve guides keep coming off and jamming the valve down, the 2nd valve keeps sticking no matter how much I clean it and it seems to take so much air compared to anything else i've ever played. (New Sov, 4v Imperial, Courtois) I read the article by Denis Wedgewood? about the quality control at Besson that was posted on here a few years ago, and wondered if its the same story with the stainless steel valves on the York? The copper plated valves on the old 1920s Boosey and Co we've got work better than the York. (Even though there a bit noisy) So much for progress!
