First, push the ball-end through the slide (a small 2nd valve
slide is shown in these photos). Then pull the plastic ribbon
through and feed in the start of the brush. Just pull the brush
through! The bristles are very soft and reach into every
corner. You can use it wet or dry.
The HW Brass-Saver[TM] trumpet snake is a very flexible,
non-scratching brush that easily cleans all the tuning slides. It
is also used to run through the leadpipe. We do not recommend that
you use it to clean the bell-bow since it may not reach all the way
through. But everywhere else on the horn, it is just
wonderful! If you are purchasing a Deluxe Care Kit, choose the
option to add the HW Brass-Saver Snake and you will save some
A wonderful brush!
