    Today, I noticed that a portion of the inside of the second valve slide on my Yamaha 8335LAS is slightly shaded red, like rose brass. Is this a beginning sign of red rot?

    Picture! Red rot is most often pink!

    Whether it is or not, and it is unlikely to be, I have never seen red rot commence in a second valve slide. Red rot normally first occurs in lead pipes and main slides.
