Estela,

What all is involved in a trumpet acid washing? I have an old 1953 Ambassador F.E. Olds Trumpet from Los Angeles and the main tuning slide is completely frozen in place. Is this something that can be remedied through an acid wash? Do you know offhand the cost for an acid wash?

Thanks,

Reinaldo

Hi Reinaldo, before we get into this, have you tried soaking the trumpet in a warm/hot water bath with plenty of mild soap in the tub for about 20 minutes?

I’ll give that a try this weekend and will let you know how that goes. 

Thanks,
