Do you know how much it costs? Could you give me an estimate if you know?
Well, I finished with the copper glo and the horn has a beautiful satiny light colored gold finish that my says lookes "antiquey" I dabbed abit of silver cleaner on the and it shined a bit more. Will still get Brasso to see what happens. Now, if I could only get the valves to work properly..........
I think I saw on some repairman's website that it cost 50-60$ to have it delacquered.
I just took the lacquer off the bell of an old stencil cornet that I bought on Ebay for cheap. I am planning on doing the whole instrument when I get the time. I took the lacquer off with very fine(about 400) sandpaper and a lot of elbow grease. I know this isn't the greatest way of removing the lacquer, but it gives me more control of what I take off and I really am just experimenting on an instrument that doesn't matter to me.
To add to an old thread:
I have recently laid in a special ultrasonic chemical which is supposed to remove lacquer. The big advantage is that it is (virtually) non-toxic. I will not mess around with Methylene Chloride. It worked on an Olds Ambassador; next time I fire it up I will check to see whether it works on the newer Epoxy lacquers.
