I'm having a problem with both my Miraphone 4 rotary valve and Conn piston valve tuba. The Miraphone's second valve is very slow to respond but works very well in sound and my Conn tuba second valve seems to be very clumsy it has somewhat good response but sometimes when I press it down it becomes stuck for a second then unsticks. I've tried oiling the two horns but but it still happens. These two are fairly new tubas so my question is, will playing both horns alot more reduce this problem
