I play on a Besson 2052 euph, and I, like many tuba/euph players, have very acitic hands. I have had the horn for a little less than a year, and I am already starting to notice that the finish on the places on the instrument my hands go, are getting a little cloudy. I would like to protect the finish on the horn to keep the value of the horn up, so I would like to find some way to cover the spots that my hands go.
I really dont want to start wearing gloves (mostly because it looks super dorky) and I have looked online, and havnt been able to find anything.
Do any of you folks know of a place I can buy grips or leather straps for my instrument?
