Differnce between Bottom-sprung piston and Top-sprung piston

  • Bottom sprung piston
    The height of valve casing is shorter than Trumpet's becasue of the bottom-sprung. Due to this, the curve of 1st tube becomes gentle and it allows mellow sound, just like the Flugelhorn.

  • Top sprung piston
    Piston and valve casing are same design as Trumpet. Curve of 1st tube must be sharper therefore the sound is closer to Trumpet as well.
