Continuing on a possibly-related tangent --
What about noises from resonating piston valve springs? Some days, on certain notes, a spring will just go "zzzinggg!" because its pitch just happens to line up perfectly with the played note.
I know that Besson sells its horns with "spring dampers", but would I have to buy a Besson to get some of these? Would they work on other brands? I don't see why not, but I haven't been able to try yet.
