Great for a quick cleaning of leadpipe
I don't think this snake is meant for a deep cleaning of your horn- through valves, valve slides etc. It is excellent for a quick weekly pass through the leadpipe when you're not near a sink/bathtub and don't have the 15 minutes to pour soapy water through your horn, snake it out, and then rinse clean water through it. I'm a busy person and I don't have time for that. Much better than just letting your horn get dirty! Like Farkas said, if you clean the leadpipe weekly you won't have to clean the rest of the horn.
Brass Saver Snake SUCKS!
I purchased this quite expensive item thinking it would be amazing for my horn but it doesn't go through all of the slides so it doesn't really clean well. It does not fit through any of the slides for key 1 and 3. I should have just bought the metal one which is 1/3 of the price that will work for sure. Very disappointed.
