    Since you are in Europe, it is probably easier to get your tools from a European supplier.

    Re: Trumpet Repair Tools

    To clarify: "supersonic" refers to the speed of sound waves through air, which is the same irrespective of the frequency. "Ultrasound" is sound of very high frequency beyond human hearing, usually defined at above 25,000 hertz. Ultrasound through an incompressible medium (like water) can clean tartar off teeth, accumulated dirt off jewellery, accumulated gunk off trumpets. Supersonic sound can ony very rarely do that; but a supersonic boom will most likely shatter your windows before your trumpet is clean.

    I flown twice at supersonic speed, one of those times I didn't want to ... in a dive and I ejected. The other time being only a JATO bottle spurt. No, such would not be a viable cleaner. Too, I don't believe ultrasound alone would be either, but they can produce intense vibratory agitation that increases the effectiveness of cleaning agents. Too, there is medical ultrasound imaging which I've been regularly tested with by my cardiologists. Normal human hearing hasn't a set of acceptable scientific parameters. The Otolaryngologist relates that my wife has an extremely high range of hearing and I can validate that whereas she now cannot hear the lowest six notes on a piano and can hear a silent dog whistle a furlong distance away albeit it is irritating as is a violin "screetch," piccolos and some of my piccolo trumpet parts ... the reason she will not attend concerts with me.
