Because brass instrument valves has such a small clearance between the valve and valve casing, any gunk buildup makes the valves really sticky/sluggish. so we use brasso to eat away at the crap on it to make the valves work correctly again... so i imagine that brasso would eat away your laquer/coating... just my opinion... if i'm wrong, someone correct me plz
if you are getting corrosion or tarnish on it though the lacquer coating is probably all ready shot
