I have acidic forearms that have eroded the silver finish on my fifth valve slide where my forearm rests against it. Having turned the slide already (both sides are now coroded somewhat) I'm having it replated this week. In the winter it's no problem because my long sleeve shirt protects the silver from my skin. In the summer, I wear and old sock that has had the heel cut off on my forearm when I practice. I omit this weird look when playing on gigs and concerts, however. Unfortunately, you can't wear gloves!
