Decoplate™ Bright Hard Silver Series
The silver has been selected exclusively for the use on brass musical instruments; being that the silver has a much harder scratch resistant finish compared to that of normal silver plating, whilst still retaining the lustrous bright-white shine.
We typically apply 12-15μm (microns) of silver on all brass musical instruments; this ensures a long lasting deposit thickness. We are also able to plate greater thicknesses up to 100μm (microns) of silver if requested.
F.H.Lambert was previously contracted by Besson Musical Instruments Limited exclusively for five years to silver plate all of the company’s production line brass musical instruments. Since then, the company withdrew production from the UK, and are now being produced in France.
However, the same silver plating process line is still being used to this day; together with all the pre-treatments, and having the largest silver plating tank in the UK. The capacity is large enough to accommodate a whole Sousaphone in the tank.
Tarnish finishes can offer radically different options for both silver and
copper. See for more details.
