* The axial flow valve began development in the late 1970s as a means of reducing the distortion to the air column created by traditional rotary valves, particularly on trombones. It was the brainchild of engineer Orla Ed Thayer (1920–2009), whose invention (commonly known as the Thayer valve) was first put to the test on a Bach 42B. His revolutionary idea led to many further developments in valve technology.
