Trigger Lever Cover

Post by pompatus » Tue Nov 06, 2018 10:07 am

The wooden cover has come loose on the trigger lever of my old Bach 42T. It's still in decent shape, and I can re-adhere it back on, but it's made me curious about other options. Will the Edwards lever covers fit on the Bach/OE Thayer trigger thumb lever? What about covers from other brands? Does anyone know the measurements of those parts/pieces?

Many thanks, for any information you guys might have.

If you send me the old one I make them out of copper and brass custom to fit. Theres one on and off the horn.

Thanks, for the offer, Jgittleson. How does the increased mass of the brass, over the original wood, affect valve action? Any change in response?
