Hi I'm wondering if anyone can give me a hand w/ this...I'm looking to sell my 3 otto link mouthpieces but they've been sitting for like 10 years, so of course they're extremely tarnished. Is there any semi-easy way to clean these? Are Links gold-plated and/or brass? Is there aproduct I could buy, or am I looking at a professional job?

Soak them in vinegar overnight to get all the crud off the inside and outside then just wipe the piece down with a papertowel. Links are gold plated normally, but sometimes it wears off. So it depends on what's exposed. A little Brasso on a cotton swab (nothing aggressive or abrasive) should pretty up any tarnish. Use some dishsoap to wash everything off when you are done.

After a few days, the brass may take on a nice copper tone like this...
