    I think Doc also treats his with a Gin and tonic once a day.

    Yes, the isopropyl alcohol kills the bacteria and fungi in the horn, the gin and tonic takes care of the bacteria in my mouth. My horn is happy. My mouth is happy.

    KT would rather have fun --- even on a cleaning thread (I mean -- people don't overthink it -- keep the horn clean and well lubricated and you won't have many problems with the equipment) gee whiz, this ain't rocket science!!!
    ROFL ROFL ROFL

    and when it is all said and done --- play and be happy!!! ---- I mean [email protected]##$ aint' that hard to figure out, or as my good buddy local would probably say -- if you want sound, blow through the instrument, if you want it clean, then clean it!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    lim (88x^5 - 23x^3 + 97x^2 + 1002)/(4x^5 + 6x^4 + 238x^3 - 38525x^2 + 582395x q-crt(p-3.14)/353 /qtip) = clean the horn

    By George, it IS rocket science.

    Just did the water flush and first valve slide oiling and it's great. The valves felt quite good to start with, but even better now. I didn't feel comfortable not being able to dry the inside after the water cleaning, so I used a Herco Spitball after with valve oil to clean it. You should post the owners manual info in the "Martin Committee Club" thread since I'm sure many are still unaware. I suspect this procedure is helpful for other trumpets beyond the Committee.
