From: "Dave McClellan" <drmc@speedfactory.net> Date: Wed, 23 May 2001 15:46:23 -0700   I have a few Trumpet reed pipes that need cleaning (more than possible = with a clean Dollar Bill!) I recently watched a professional techician do it = (he used Brasso to do the actual cleaning of the reed and shallot faces). But = I did not catch the exact sequence he used to take it apart. So what's the sequence:   What do you do with the tuning wire? Do you push it entirely off the end = of reed and then remove the wedge and reed from the block? I just don't want to damage anything.   Thanks, Dave McClellan

Take a longnose pliers and wiggle the wedgeblock from the reed. = Remove the reed and shallot. Place these removed items somewhere safe. The = shallot may be stuck so wiggle it loose with pliers -carefully. Reassembly- insert the shallot flat-side square with the wedgeblock = slot. insert the reed and wedgeblock, carefully tapping the block in place. Replace the tuning wire WITHOUT catching the reed-tip.   In a nutshell, that's how I do it. Careful not to lose anything.   Rick
