I am considering having the inside of my trumpet bell which is silver plated re-done in gold plating. This would be for purely cosmetic reasons.
Is there any reason besides the $100 cost not to do this? What effect, if any, would it have on the sound? The tone of the trumpet now is a very classic commercial lead trumpet type sound. I am very happy with the horn, just want to do something so that it does not look exactly like hundreds of other trumpets.
