    ...Hi folks,
    Just aquired this horn. It's terrific!! Just the right amount of resistance with a fat and rich sound. Stripped the remaining laquer from the bell with hot tap water. Any comments??

    The laquer doesn't stick very [on the Sterling Pluss bell] well in the first place, so it came off easily.

    I have experienced similar on a couple of vintage King horns with SS bells; may be the "bonding" process is not well-mated with this particular combination. On these horns (the Kings), the lacquer on the brass-areas seemed to stay intact.

    Hey, Dave!

    Sounds like a beauty! I'm guessing that the water in Seabrook, NH may have done the trick in half the time. Whaddya think? Of course, that may have given the horn a "half-life", and that would be a sad thing to do to a trumpet! ;-)

    Anyways, I hope that all is well with you! Drop me a line sometime.

    Keep blowin' that horn!
