About the Icons
Do not throw or swing the instrument when others
are close by.
The headjoint or other parts may fall off hitting other
people. Always treat the instrument gently.
Regarding brass instruments with a plate nish, the color of the nish may change over time. However,
changes in the nish do not affect the instrument’s performance. Discoloration in its early stages can easily
be removed with proper maintenance. (As discoloration progresses, however, it may be difcult to remove.)
* Please use the accessories that are specified for use with the particular type of finish found on the instrument. Also, metal
polishes remove a thin layer of the finish’s top coat which will make the finish thinner. Please be aware of this before using
Keep small parts out of the reach of infants.
Your children may accidentally swallow them.
