    I use hagerty's after a reccomendation in TM, and have loved it even though it has a very strong smell! I did however just buy the pump-spray becasue I got one use out of the 14 oz. areosol can. Haven't used it yet, but plan to bathe and polish this weekend.:D

    I've used brasso before, and it seems to work fine on my instruments. I have a silver polishing cloth that came with my Chinese horn, and I've been using that for my besson. I use a lot of force on that rag to get the dirt and what not off. It comes out for me. I guess I'm one of the originals who don't use the new fancy stuff. Call me old fashion. :D

    Does anybody have any pictures of the salt/baking soda method? Anyways, I just gave my trumpet it's first bath 3-6-10, although I couldn't get ALL of the gunk out, there was a lot. I didn't try the salt/baking soda method because I wanted to make sure of the right proportions.
    p.s. How often should I use Hagerty's on by horn?
