It is not under the lacquer.
I will try the dish washing method tonight.
If it is not under the lacquer, but finger prints on the lacquer, then you need to use that rare grease with the clean microfiber cloth.
Special Rare Fingerprint remover Grease....
I did the elbow grease method with my microfiber cloth
If it sat long enough after some especially acidic perspiration-laden fingers touched it, the lacquer may be eaten through. Can you post hi-res pictures in good lighting?
Sometimes handguards cause more problems than they solve.
Ain't that the truth. Some eat the silver plate away sight unseen,
HERE YA GO.
That looks like it has worn through the lacquer, and you are back to the raw brass. Maybe try some car polish on it and see what happens. If it cleans it up, then apply some car wax to give it some protection.
The different colours you have on the photo indicate that the lacquer has worn away, and the brass is reacting to the hand perspiration.
Nice looking horn.
Looking closer, there does seem to be no lacquer where the bell joins (just under 2nd valve finger) maybe worn off.
Agree with Peter, try car polish and see if it helps, with the 2 curved bell braces you could try holding it by the braces between thumb and first finger and not wrap hand around bell. I find this method quite comfortable.
Thanks Peter and stumac
What mind of car polish?
Well I have a bottle of raw brass, lacquer, silver polish made by Yamaha coming by ship.
Would that replace the car polish or if it doesn't can you give me a example of a car polish?
Thanks for complimentary Peter
