Silky smooth surface too.

It is indeed brass, sorry I missed that point. I have used rubbing alcohol and Brasso only, so far. Acetone may be a better bet...

I'd be afraid the steel wool would leave the surface rougher than I like.

What solvents have you tried? Acetone will dissolve most organic materials that were deposited from a solution. If it's some sort of material like an epoxy that polymerized in place, it can't dissolve. It has to be broken down or mechanically abraded away. Might try soaking it in Liquid Plumber or such for a while. Sodium hydroxide shouldn't hurt your brass. If you use an acid solution, you'll end up with a copper-looking slide, as acids dissolve all of the zinc out of the surface layer of the brass.

Has anybody else had this problem with Dunlop slides, and have you found a solution???

I was thinking of using a very fine gauge steel wool, but I'm not sure what the remaining surface would feel like, and whether I could still play it...
