Ive had my SBA tenor about 6 months now and was wondering what was the best way to clean a sax which has had all its lacquer stripped off?

The horn had been stripped a long time but when I bought it, it still had some shine on it (I dont know how the dealer who had it before me kept it, he didnt play it). After about 6 months of semi-hard playing it has started to dull down abit. Any advice on cleaning it? I usually just use hot, soapy water? Also it had quite ornate, crisp engraving so I dont want to damage that.

cheers.

Do what I do with my stripped VI alto: Don't. :D

I just use cotton swabs to get the dust out of the hard to reach places. Wipe it down with a cotton cloth once in a while. That's about all bare brass needs. Let it get ugly.

Try liquid Turtle Wax, normally for polishing your car, in the green plastic bottle. It has a relatively pleasant odor and does a great job of renewing the shine.
