I was wondering if anyone on here has ever used a raw brass main tuning slide. Does it have any substantial effect on the sound of the horn? I'm messing around with my old yamaha ysl356 and thought a raw brass tuning slide would be something interesting to try.

If it makes any difference at all it will be pretty small.

Getting that epoxy lacquer off the Yamaha 356 is going to be pretty hard.  You may wind up abrading it off and removing some brass which will make a bigger difference.

I have a couple of horns with a raw brass main tuning slide. I prefer the feel of playing on an un-laquered horn.  Incidentally, after 30 years of playing on raw brass and laquered horns, I believe it's all about the feel for the player and it, at best, has only a nominal effect on the sound of the horn.

I don't think there are many players alive who are attune enough to tell the difference if there is any with just the TS.
