Thank you again, for your suggestions and I will enjoy my horn much longer now TY!!!!
This remindes me so much of my childhood years. My mom would wash my mouth out with soap AND water. Then when I would go off to play my trumpet, the room looked like the set of the Lawrence Welk show! Ahh one'a and ahh two'a and a three...
Frequency of washing is dependent on frequence of playing, but if you play daily, then once a month is recommend by many. I do play daily, but find every other month and certainly no longer than every three months has worked well for me.
If you play a double C and hold it for 90 seconds the vibrations on the horn produce a similar effect as ultrasonic cleaning....
well it's sounds good anyway.. not the C the concept
Do it underwater for best results.
.. with a little Dawn dish soap or non-amoniated window cleaner... thanks for that.. I guess I just took for granted that it would be understood
Do it under soapy water for even better best results!
What about ultrasonic cleaning? How risky is that with a gold plated horn? They use an acidic detergent in the mix.
I use what Chuck recommended: non ammonia glass cleaner like Windex. Cheap, effective.
Ultrasound is a touchy issue. My horns will not go into an industrial strength ultrasound machine. Ultrasound has the power to change resonance. My horns don't need modified resonance.....
