Euphonium grime gutter wanted

Hi all,
Anyone got a metal grime gutter they are willing to sell? To fit a 1984 Imperial euph. I can’t find one anywhere.
I’ve looked at the plastic Bach or Jo-Ral alternatives and they are not what I want.

Thanks in advance

I guess not, they’re pretty much a universal fit I should have thought. I’ve seen that, but they’re out of stock. The only other one I have seen is a Besson one which costs £55 (eek)

Try a strip of sponge wedged up under the valves, it soaks up the drips and doesn't vibrate or make a noise if it drops out.
Wash out after use it can be reused as long as it lasts, Comes in various colours and costs a mere trifle.

The other solution Ive seen was one devised by a Kiwi called Trent Hamilton for his Bb bass. He took a strip of plastic tube - similar to those used in wine making/syphoning and drilling holes in it, blocking off one end, and leaving the other to drain away to the floor (although you could seal up both ends). Sponge will block off the holes in the bottom of the valve, and possibly alter the handling of the instrument

You have to leave a small gap between holes and sponge and I do use it on a Bb Bass so it might be different on a Euph.
