    Hi Taylordiving,
    The trumpet is basically plumbing held together with solder(sp), you could be jumping from the frying pan to the fire depending on where and how you heat the area. Possibly the use of Marvel Mystery oil can do the trick. I've had very good success with this type of penetrating oil. If this doesn't work, I'd recommend a tech that knows what they are doing.
    Hope this helps
