Yeah, I think I will have to like it as it is a Brian Powell tweaked mouthpiece that came out really good and works for me. I'm wondering if some types of HR do it worse than others. Also it was on my desk in the sunlight some, I'm wondering if that did it.I'm interested in the answer if there is one. Mine would be to learn to love that green. That's what I decided to do.
You're lucky sunlight discoloration is sometimes accompanied with an odor so foul you wouldn't want it near your mouth.ok, so that's probably it - sunlight. It's odd that one did it and the other not. I was keeping the tenor and sop on the corner of my desk next to where I practice but the tenor is fine. The soprano looks like it was on vacation for a few weeks in Rio. It does have a bit of a tan line from wearing it's lig.
And by the way I know someone that sounds great on a level air.
thanks - I'll give that a try. I was starting to feel like a bad boy for using it as a paper weight and stinking it up in the sunlight.Take some plain toothpaste and a cotton towel and hand buff it back to a googd shine...and then keep a little oil of some type ,,olive,,,mineral,,,or some cooking type will help keep it a little longer .

and in about the same proportion as vinegar...........Lemon juice still contains acid.
Exposure to sunlight and the consequent heat could also cause some discolouration. While I doubt that the occasional immersion in ordinary cooking vinegar (5% or 6% on average in most countries in the world ) would be the culprit.thanks - I'll give that a try.
