    Hey everyone

    I recently got my Trumpet signed by Arturo Sandoval. I would like to put some sort of sealent on top weather it be a spray on clear coat. I just want to make sure it wont damage the finish on the horn or the signature.

    Thanks

    RX2,
    if you like the playing characteristics of the horn, write the manufacturer for a suggestion, or contact somebody like Josh Landress or Charlie Melk. If you try a DIY method and aren't happy, the finish and the signature may have to go................

    Your local music store may have some junk bells lying around to test different coatings (if you know what kind of marker or pen he used). The store I used to work for did this for an autographed mandolin (we found a junk guitar for the test), and it was really a crap shoot as to how things would react with the ink and the existing finish. I wouldn't try it without a simulation.
