The valve configuration is rotor dependent Bb/F/E tuning. Simply put, the first valve is like an F trigger on a tenor.  The second valve only functions when the first valve is in and the not produced in first position is a flat E (Not D or Eb, but a flat E).  The purpose of the second valve on this model is to allow the player to play a low B in 7th position identical to the B one octave above it as played on a tenor in 7th position without any valve.  A low C can then be played with both valves in, with a slightly raised 6th position.  This is a very simple and intuitive approach to bass trombone, ideal for a tenor doubler.  (0207 2943)
