    It worked but not when attached to the outer bow. Had to attach around the 3rd valve slide. Valerie offered to make any necessary changes but I declined deciding I really didn’t need it.

    That's really unfortunate! A case failing because of staples being used instead of appropriate hardware. No excuse for that on a nearly $10K horn.

    Thanks Dennis. I forget the model number of his euph but it's an older Miraphone. Similar shape to that of the 186 tuba. His bell does go the wrong way, but... with us sitting next to the tubas now...

    I still use Blue Juice valve oil along with Hetman-7 slide grease on all but my 2nd slide (Hetman-8 on 2nd slide as it’s thicker). I’m not a big fan of the bottle Blue Juice comes in so use an empty...

    Thanks for the comments Dave and enhite. Yes, it was a ‘written-out’ part’ for the flute soloist but challenging for sure.

    I think we had 6 horns playing at that concert. Several ‘rips’ for...

    You really can’t polish lacquered horns. As you mentioned the lacquer will come off. Some folks use Pledge furniture polish and a lint-free cloth.
