    There are US machines built specifically for the instrument repair trade.
    A horn that is being US cleaned typically doesn't need more than 2-3 minutes in the tank, and doesn't need to be submerged in hot water or harsh chemicals.
    The frequencies used to clean are also much less powerful than ones that would be used to take build-up off of an automobile part.

    I have never had an issue with US cleaning, and in regards to the red rot, any competent repair tech would know to inspect the horn for major red rot prior to US cleaning so they can isolate that spot from being cleaned, or clean the horn with chemicals or standard soap.
