  1. Eb Alto
    I am getting a brand new unlaquered saxophone, I want to keep it looking relatively nice as it develops a patina but I do not want to use anything that will damage it. I was planning on using a microfiber cloth I have at home (the kind you would use to clean a car) but I wanted to make sure it...
  2. Sax Body and Finish
    I've seen several posts over the years (I read much, post very little) about using gun bluing products to darken brass but not many actual experiences. Quick story first. Skip the next paragraph if you don't care to hear the typical disclaimer story regarding how the horn came to be in such...

  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey guys! I'm just wondering if any of you out there have unlacquered horns and how you clean them. I always swab out my saxophone at least twice after I'm done playing and then I wipe off the outside of it with a cleaning cloth, but fingerprints still burn into the brass. The trumpet...
  8. Sax Body and Finish
    Hey Everyone, I bought an unlacquered P. Mauriat 66RUL less than a year ago and it recently became covered in orange and green tarnish. So, I took some brasso and polished it until it was shiny again. I like the look of the dark tarnish, but i don't know how to prevent the colors from...
