So... I've been reading a lot about how to care for a raw brass horn, and am now thoroughly confused; polish vs don't polish, using home remedies vs. Brasso and other commercial cleaners.
I'm nearing the purchase of a very valuable, vintage, raw brass horn, and don't want to screw it up. Yet, would like to clean it up a bit, bringing some luster back to its lovely curves.
What suggestions do you all have for the best way to clean, spiff up, and preserve a fine looking instrument?
