    i always find this process very interesting. I always thought getzen still used pitch to fill their bells because it prevents imperfections better.....doesn't take anything always from the horns, but more raises the question of why the bach bore sizes are so inconsistent.....

    Maybe Bach doesn't use soapy water. It sure smells better than pitch.

    bach uses soapy water, we have talked about it before. Most of the better manufacturers that make horns with one piece bells use pitch. It makes sure that the crook maintains a constant bore. The water is too mailable. Its a cheaper and faster process(more horns per day). The "bach crap shoot" started after they switched. I'm glad to see getzen knows how to do it the right way....or a way that works....

    You use soapy water and freeze it. The soap in the water lets the ice bend instead of shattering.
