What do you guys do to deal with the green oxydation spots on unlacquered horns? Let me know!
you can ignore it and eventually end up with a crater at every spot that has it or you can remove it and not let it come back.OK, try 0000 steel wool.
Frankly, as long as it's not making your hands green, you can just ignore it. That's what I do with most minor discolorations on my instruments. If I were to set about keeping beautiful two altos two tenors a baritone a bass sax three sopranos, two flutes a piccolo a clarinet a double-bass four guitars a Fender bass three amplifiers a portable reed organ a ukulele and an upright piano, I would not have time even to sleep and eat never mind earning a living or practicing music.
Yeah, well, I'm 58 and if I live to 90 and am able to play till then that'll be 32 more years; I've been playing about 42 years and haven't had corrosion penetrate the wall of a saxophone yet, so I'm not real worried. If I ever have a saxophone get a hole due to corrosion, I'll just solder the hole shut and keep going. Adrian Rollini had a corrosion hole at the RH thumb rest of his bass saxophone. He just soldered a silver dollar over it and went to the next gig.you can ignore it and eventually end up with a crater at every spot that has it or you can remove it and not let it come back.
