Effect of Tracker Bar Hose Length on Repetition
By Alan Erb

I have always tried to minimize the air volume between the tracker
bar and the pouch well, including the pouch well itself.  Less
volume allows the bleed to "reset" the valve quicker.

It's really great to have the instrument follow the paper exactly.
I agree that single valves do the trick when done right, but double
valves may be an advantage when tying notes or adding instruments.
