Thread: Cleaning and Gold Accents

  1. Cleaning and Gold Accents

    Hello all!

    I have a Miraphone M5050 euphonium which has gold accents, i.e. the trigger, parts of the valves, etc. and I am wanting to get it chemical cleaned but am unsure whether that is a good idea considering the gold accents. Will it be okay or should I avoid getting it cleaned chemically?

    My Sterling was finished the same way and I had it chem cleaned with no trouble. I believe the process is all internal (and should probably be called chemical flush).
