Stainless steel piston valves are in every Carol Brass Trumpet
Stainless steel is superior to traditional Monel piston valves because:
Monel piston valves still contain an estimated 30% of copper elements, just as Nickel Silver contains an estimated 70% of copper elements.
The more copper elements there are, the greater the chance of the metal oxidizing.
This process creates verdigris, which in turn leads to a high chance of piston valves becoming stuck.
The stainless steel piston valves eliminate this problem.
The properties of stainless steel make it very hard to work on in the manufacturing process. Therefore, other factories are not able to use stainless steel in the manufacture of their piston valves and other components.
Carol Brass have been using stainless steel since their inception in 1989.
