MAW Valves

Post by KL1997 »

What do y'all think about MAW valves? Are they a worthy purchase? I play on the B&S 3198, so I don't believe I would have to get any special work done to fit them. Any thoughts/recommendations?

I think that they created a more even blow for me.

I'd throw them in a 3198 any day. I think they would really open up the low register of those horns, which, in my experience, just takes some getting used to. A learning curve, if you will. In my Thor, I'm not sure it could really benefit in the low register, but I don't think it would hurt!

YMMV, I'd give them a shot in your 3198.

Hi...I needed a decent playing horn as a beginning stage to truly observe what these children can do and I needed to adjust a couple of things to arrive. The new valves improve on the stock line than the first valves, more open, better opening, however I simply didn't care for the horn as it might have been. As I referenced above, with the 25O line and MAW valves 1 and 3, and the stock cylinder on 2, it gets a stellar sound.
