Using Brasso to clean unlaquered saxophone

I know the whole idea to buy a unlaquered sax is the cool patina look that it eventually gets but the greenish blotches arent' the part I like to keep. So i tried a little Brasso with paper towel and rubbed out some of the main areas on the bell just to see how it would clean. Posting a few pics to show you the difference.

I would like to hear from any others who own unlaquered horns and what the decide to do or not to do with them. this is a CE Winds pro series tenor that plays wonderfully.

I have used a really tiny piece of scotchbrite on verdigris, to just remove it locally. The brass gets its patina back in no time. Another method is just to forget about it and practice ! ;-)
