How to Oil or Grease Tuning Slides
Use Ultra-Pure REGULAR Tuning Slide Lube to
lubricate all the tuning slides of brass instruments, including
trumpet, trombone, French horn, baritone, euphonium, and
Use Ultra-Pure LIGHT Tuning Slide Lube to
lubricate the 1st and 3rd valve slides of
trumpets that have to move quickly and easily to make adjustments
to the pitch of some notes that are a bit sharp.
Ultra-Pure HEAVY tuning slide lube is
especially good for slides that are loose and tend to move over
time. It will really keep them in place.
Ultra-Pure Tuning Slide & Cork Grease in a
"lip balm" tube is a simple way to lube your slides with a
medium-weight grease that will last about a week or two.
First, wipe off the slide with a tissue to remove the old slide
lube and any grime. Put a dab of the tuning slide lube onto the
slide and rub it around with your fingers. After putting the slide
back into the instrument, wipe off any excess lube that got onto
the horn or your fingers using a tissue. You should lube your
tuning slides every week or two.
