    Hi, I have a schilke s32 and was polishing the horn and some polish got on the first valve slide and really screwed it up! What can I do to fix it? I put some thinner and tried very very fine cloth but to no avail. I called my music store and they said bring it in but just wanted to know if anyone can help! Thanks

    So is it preventing it from sliding properly? Assuming that's the problem, you could always give your trumpet a bath to wash it completely off the valve slide.

    A little dish soap and water and a plastic bristled brush should do it.

    um wipe it off? If it were a Bach it'd be a different story, cause Bachs are as leaky as the hoover damn would be if you dropped the A-bomb on it. (and im not talking about a fat chick) jk, I had that happen, I had the slides reagreased and all when it happened, I just cleaned off the slide, and it worked like a charm again.

    Nice - insult a brand that isn't even mentioned and women.

    That's class and maturity.
