Has anyone ever used Herco Spitballs to clean their instrument? Never found a wire brush which lasts more than a year


And has anyone experienced using it with rotary valves like the french horn?

Hmm, not sure how they would work on a conical bore - I suspect that they might be too tight at the mouthpiece end and little use later on. But that's a pure guess, as I've never used them on a trumpet either. A long thread on their use in trumpets here (and note that they often call trumpets "horns" in America in slang terminology): http://www.trumpethe...light=spitballs
