    Get Jasco paint varnish remover, Home Depot, Orchard Lowes etc.
    It's a heavy gel type liquid. Rips that lacquer right away. Save yourself some time and effort and only take the lacquer off the bell.

    Easy Off oven cleaner works like a charm. Do it in a well ventilated area. If it is older non epoxy lacquer, it will be off in seconds.

    What would be the purpose of removing the laquer?

    Primarily for sound, sometimes for looks; a tarnished horn is also good for grossing out viola players.:cool:

    Would it be suggested for a somewhat inexperienced player? I'm not really sure how to do it, but if it would help, I would definitely do it.
