    Hi I have a really bad scratch on my (fairly) new laquered trumpet:(
    Any ideas how to minimise it/ get rid of it?

    Take the rest off with a wire brush! It's all the rage these days.

    Clear nail varnish. It won't look perfect,but it will stop the tarnish and flaking of the laquer.

    Make up a story about using your trumpet to save small children from a runaway horse/train/cow or whatever. That way you can look heroic instead of clumsy:biggrin:

    ask a good repairer for advice and then get him to fix it up !
    have a similar problem with a sousa I just got off ebay and my repairer is doing a pretty good job.

    Funny ...

    Metal Wax ( ) will make heavily scratched instruments look nearly new. It is a proper and inexpensive way to fix a scratched instrument. [​IMG]

    Inexpensive and great!

    Got to admit mine needed a bit more than a scratch fixed up. But I,m not used to Laqured instruments.
    my Tuba and Euphonium are both silver plate.
    I needed the inside of the Sousa bell relaquered and a new lead pipe made up plus some minor dents caused in the post fixed. good on the postie !But at the end of the Day a good repairer can make a good ( well hidden ) repair that you would hardly notice.
