Cornet random questions
Hi I bought a cornet (now just waiting for shipement, mmmm excitement grows!)
ok heres questions
1)It is used, lacquier fell here and there where hands are, around valves etc. Now I decided to strip all the lacquier and to leave raw brass. tell me how to strip the remaining lacquier and how to maintain raw brass, only polish or do I protect it with something else.
2) how does playing differ from tpt and flugel. I have both and flugel is generaly easier for me to play than tpt, and there noticeable is difference in response from the instrument. Tell me how will cornet feel more like tpt or more like flugel?
