Usage Tips: How to lubricate the trombone slide

Shake well before use. Wipe the inner slide with a clean cloth and swab the outer slides before each application. Apply sparingly -- 2 or 3 drops per slide tube. Spread evenly up, down, and side-to-side one slide at a time. If the slide begins to feel stiff, apply one more drop per tube or clean slide and reapply. No water mist needed (or very little mist). Apply fresh every day or two for best results.


If you have been using a different product, such as S-O-M or a cream, there may be a transition period for about a week while the old treatment is replaced by the new. Clean your slide before changing to Ultra-Pure Trombone Slide Lube.

Some players have had exceptional results if they apply a tiny amount of the Yamaha Slide Lubricant to the slides as a first layer, then add 2 or 3 drops of Ultra-Pure Trombone Slide Lube on top. From that point, just add a drop of the Ultra-Pure when the slide needs refreshing.

It also works well for oiling plastic trombone slides, such as pBone and Tromba slides. Put plenty of the lube on the inner slides and rub it in with your fingers to lubricate the inner tubes. Then lube the stockings and work the slide in and out to spread it.

Ultra-Pure Trombone Slide Lube has a really wonderful glide on all types of slides. It lasts a long time and does not gum up or leave residues. It has a fast, smooth feel that you will love! Nicely water-repellent and can be replenished with a little water mist.  Just apply a few drops to each inner slide tube and spread it up-down and side-to-side, one tube at a time.
