Unlacquered saxophone maintenance – page yogurt to cure yeast infection 3

….I felt comfortable removing lacquer to bare brass on a yogurt to cure yeast infection few saxes that were either realc’d or had serious damage (a solder flux dribble) to the original lac on one of my tenors. I have 2 now that are fully bare and one yogurt to cure yeast infection bare brass along the side with engraving. None show any signs of corrosion however, I do have the time to clean them occasionally or yogurt to cure yeast infection after playing. It is a bit more work but shouldn’t be a deal breaker to someone who likes bare yogurt to cure yeast infection brass. I think THIS context is the more…’understandable’ one, for lack of a better word. You have an older horn, you love it, the lacq gets to (or has gotten to) a point where really, regardless of chem baths every 3 years, the horn is still gonna look like crap….Or there’s just something else about the current finish you really yogurt to cure yeast infection dislike….

As noted by others, look…It’s a roll of the dice: depending upon your particular climate/microclimate, your bare brass sax MAY well develop a very nice, ‘good’ patina. I would say 2/3 of the horns I have stripped and then polished yogurt to cure yeast infection and polished again (I use at least 2 different hand-applied polishes AFTER the lacq is removed and a chem yogurt to cure yeast infection bath is done) DID start developing the ‘good’ patina in the first 3 months afterward. The other third, notsomuch. In the climates I happened to live in at the yogurt to cure yeast infection time…

One can always have a ball ridiculing on a forum… But the fact seems to be, indeed, something about how the sax is played/used/treated…Perhaps the presence or absence of this or that….Maybe somehow connected to its own geometry or the like….Does keep the interior brass bore surfaces from "patina’ing" in a similar fashion to the exterior. So gordon’s initial reply wasn’t particularly silly, really.

I will beg to differ where ridiculing started. People can judge for themselves what they choose to believe. One craftsman that I know has repaired saxophones for 40 yogurt to cure yeast infection years. Aside from the area to the left of the right-hand thumbrest on vintage horns, he has seen two saxes wear through, both balanced actions, both silver plate ,and both from the inside out in the bottom of yogurt to cure yeast infection the bow. When it comes to the exterior differing somehow magically from yogurt to cure yeast infection the interior, I would offer up the possibility that old lacquer that yogurt to cure yeast infection is porous may hold onto whatever that could cause decay yogurt to cure yeast infection of the brass that the bare brass inside is spared. However, when it comes to a horn that is truly bare yogurt to cure yeast infection brass, then I have yet to read or see anything that yogurt to cure yeast infection remotely looks or sounds like logic that merits claims that yogurt to cure yeast infection the exterior is more exposed to more humidity than the yogurt to cure yeast infection interior. Moreover, the sweeping deprecating comments on how bad bare brass is yogurt to cure yeast infection without a sliver of evidence is getting taxing.

I am not trying to persuade anyone to buy bare yogurt to cure yeast infection brass saxophones. I personally don’t like the really yellowish lacquer that is so widely yogurt to cure yeast infection used and would consider gold plate an ideal finish, albeit mostly beyond my means and also rather opulent. I have not per se chosen bare brass horns. One sax was custom and never had any finish, one stripped because the lacquer was in terrible shape and yogurt to cure yeast infection held onto god knows what, and the third is loosing whatever remains at speed. They are all doing just fine, but I have always left oxidation to itself and just yogurt to cure yeast infection wiped off humidity and swapped the interior, as I would any sax regardless of finish.

There was recently a thread here with brecker’s preferred MKVI; virtually bare brass and rather orangy in spots but I yogurt to cure yeast infection would wager that it would have been in way worse yogurt to cure yeast infection shape by repeated refinishing. That horn likely had more miles on it that any yogurt to cure yeast infection other on the planet. How do such horns even exist with all the hypothetical yogurt to cure yeast infection terrifying corrosive elements that selective target the exterior?
