    I'll bet that silver plating in a bottle wears off pretty quickly. I tried a similar product on some raw brass spots on a silver-plated trumpet and, yes, they turned out looking nice and silver. The spots were in wear areas, though, and the plating wore off after playing the horn a few times.

    Send it to someone who plates mouthpieces and instruct them to just clean it up for plating, but not to try to buff out any imperfections on the rim or in the cup.

    Mouthpiece Express claims to offer this service. I may take them up on it after the liquid treatment wears through. So, next week then.

    I expect this, too. But the cup isn't a high wear area, and I want to see how long it lasts. Right now it has done its job, keeping the raw brass taste out of my mouth. I expect to replate it properly, but maybe it will hold up enough.
