This is the trumpet tub (sitting in the tuba tub) after cleaning one trumpet!
Egads! Valve and slide performance aside, you might have just saved the owner from some horrible disease!!!
Student or pro? Believe it or not, most of the dirtiest horns I've seen have been pros.
Edit; I mean horn owned by professionals
I'd say that one needed some TLC alright, Yuck!
This one was a kid. But I agree with you as to the state of a lot of professional horns. Some players are often anal about 3 thou difference in bore size, but not worried about 30 thou of dirt!
... And it really ticks me off to have bought or rented a pre-owned one from a musical instrument store that when i bathed it revealed such garbage is the water, but that's was what i rented to own in college and re-sold it asap (it was as clean as I could get it by the time I sold it). Small wonder that store isn't in business now!
So Ivan, what is the cost of the HazMet crew to remove this from your premises?
Ooh, that is awful. I lent a horn to a friend and got it back with a big gob of goo in the main tuning slide - sickening.
That's why I always wash my horns in the bathtub, under running water and with the plug out... you don't really see what's coming out...
