Tech claimed it took more than an hour to get it out, and I believe it.
I've gone off snakes altogether. Instead, I bought a smallish ultrasound bath - just large enough to take the bell and valve block. Works a treat, and creates a little bit of revenue offside - I offer to clean friends' hooters for a few bucks.
I'd do it for free!
Better customer service would have been to do it for free...
A percussionist would be pleased to have brushes in his kit.
Tom, if you get tired I will be kind enough to spell you....
If it took the tech an hour to get the brush out of the crook then I'd change techs.
1) first try the "surgical clamp" 7" Hemostat Clamp
2) if that doesn't work then break out the dent balls and flexible driver. Any decent tech can clear a clogged slide
with this equipment in minutes.
Don't think the stats would have done the trick - too deep into the narrow tubing. As for balls, the wire was very stiff and each end was hard against the side of the slide. Just don't think this was as easy a job as some suppose.
I agree with rockwell. Let's give the tech a little credit.
Just got my horn undented (or is it dedented?). $ 32.50, so I saved myself $27.50 and they replaced the corks! Turn around time of 4 hours!!! They're either real slow or I'm special! Snakes are evil in tight little crooks.
