Trumpeterb, if you want to take lacquer off, put a coating of brasso on and let it sit for 30 minutes and see what you've got. There is no way to say how long the brasso has to be on the horn because there are different lacquers. Some lacquers are very soft, others very hard. It also depends on whether the horn is new, or a used one with a lot of the lacquer gone. From my past experience, you won't have to do much rubbing to remove the lacquer. Just letting Brasso sit on the horn does most of the work for you..................

Easy -off oven cleaner will tear off some laquer....so will brasso, but there is a good bit of rubbing involved.
When I was in the Army and in the Old Guard, I used two things for stripping lacquer from brass - ammonia or acetone. However, I would soak whatever it was soak in a dish or something first. It's easier when all you are trying to strip are small uniform accoutriments like buttons and collar brass.
