    Green Trumpet


    I own a Green L.A. trumpet made by Werril. The trumpet play very well. I want to remove the green color on it, to give it to my girlfriend. Green trumpet will look stupid in an orchestra!!!

    I tried to boil the trumpet, to use lacquer remover, but nothing seem to work.

    Do you have any suggestion or do you know any repairman who can do the job?

    Thank you very much.

    Stripping it to raw brass would cost around $200.
    Relaquering would be another few hundred I think.

    I would buy another trumpet

    You can get a chem clean and get them to leave it in too long, one of my profs had a "free laquer stripping" that way.

    The Weril is not that expensive of a trumpet. The protective coat is probably not "laquer" which can be easily removed, but epoxy which does a much better job of protecting the brass.
    $200-300 is what you will have to pay, if you want quality work done. Anything less could amount to getting what you paid for...........

    That's a lot of time and money to spend on cosmetic details for a Weril. Why not give it to a kid who is learning and buy something better for your girlfriend?

    Best wishes,
