Just happened across a very tidy Yamaha BB.

It's in great nick but the gold hardware makes it look bad. It's sort of like a gorgeous woman with a gob full of bad teeth...

Rather than change the hardware, I'd like to know if anyone has had success getting hardware replated?

It's gold and I reckon I'll just keep it that way...

My friend makes trumpets for a living and is going to replate it.

Great success...

The other option is to shot-blast it to remove the gold hardware. I've done it with the gold hardware of my old Streamer and it looks so much better and cost me nothing as I can do it myself at work!
