 RE: My First Overhaul

I've taken an old "monstrosity" (mouthpiece, barrell and bell are plastic with two middle wood sections) and touched it up. I took off all the hardware and cleaned it up (Brasso). Then, I pulled on all the springs (taking of rust and replacing some of springs). I cleaned off all the screws and used a q-tip with a worn-out piece of sand cloth (REALLY WORN OUT) to clear all the holes. Then, re-assembled. Like I said- this was a pratice one. The keys were all strait and pads fit well. I got fairly good tone- with just a slight flat when I climbed above a high E. I still want to replace one more spring- but, I'm up for the challenge.

Thank you all.
