I don't think horns are plated on the inside-just externally. Look down the leadpipe with the tuning slide pulled. One thing one has to be careful about using someone who doesn't plate horns for a living is to NOT get plating inside the valve casings.

Wouldn't keeping the horn rinsed everyday prevent the critter build up? This I would hope to be in conjunction with a cleaning once a month.
