Re: K Horn mishap

I don't believe in abrasive media blasting (e. g. sand, glass beads, Al2O3, etc) any die cast horn bell or part. It ruins (changes forever) the smooth die cast surface finish.

The #2 bell most of the time blew sharp, often as much as 50 to 70 cts sharp meaning it was between F# an...
