    This is a trumpet I rarely use, except for around 10 pep band games a year and marching band.

    Hey Tom!

    This is probably just more evidence of my dorkliness, but when I was in high school, I marched with my Schilke C5. I just had to be careful with it!

    Ok? Haha. Any thoughts about removing the finish?

    I removed the lacquer off of my Yamaha Xeno using paint stripper from Home Depot. It took a few applications, but it basically just rinsed off with water. Make sure you use a ventialted area and rubber gloves but it was quite easy. I then used scotch brite dish pads from the grocery store give it that brushed look. It came out great and the horns plays fantastic, I use it for all of my gigs. It has tarnished of course but has a great vintage look. Good luck!

    Is there an emoticon to show that I'm sick to my stomach?

    Why did the punk trumpet cross the road?

    It was stapled to a chicken!:play:
