① Disassembly of Trumpet

Remove the insertion / extraction tube, pistons, and bottom cap.

The pistons are further disassembled. The felt is not washed, so remove it and replace it if it is

→ Piston felt link

② Washing the instrument

Wash the instrument with brass soap or mild detergent in lukewarm water. If you have a flexible cleaning tool, you can wash the bent part inside the pipe as well. Use the brush inside the mouthpiece.

③ Washing

Be careful not to leave any detergent on the instrument.

④ Wipe off the water

Use gauze, a cleaning rod, swabs, etc. to remove the water in the tube. It is easy to use a cotton swab on the pistons.

⑤ Replenish the oil

Apply grease and valve oil when assembling.

If you are concerned about the discoloration of the instrument, polish it using polish.

So, I’ve introduced how to wash the trumpet. You will feel refreshed if you can wash yours completely. When the inside of the pipe is clean, the feeling of blowing may change. It may be better to avoid cleaning just before an important performance such as a concert or competition. Please try washing your trumpet completely, for which you have plenty of time now.
