Hey All, I've been tossing around the idea of removing the lacquer (not epoxy lacquer) from my horn myself (mainly b/c I don't have a back up and can't afford the time restrains to ship it off). I've bought this lacquer remover from Lowe's but someone mentioned to Bath tub/boiling water method. Anyone ever try this? Successful? Pain in the butt? Just want to hear some feed back on the whole issue. A local older trumpet player suggested the same method. I've read some past threads on this whole topic, but just wanted to see about the boiling water method. Thanks folks.
