Brass essentials you should never leave home without…
There’s nothing more annoying than a sticky valve. Thankfully, the vast majority are easily rectified with an application of some valve oil. There are several brands to choose from – Blue Juice, Al Cass and Rocket are all popular. The Rocket valve oil offers the best value for money.
Tuning Slide Grease
Because there is nothing worse than being stuck in the wrong key. Tuning slide grease keeps tuning slides moving freely and smoothly for longer.
Trombones Only – Slide Cream
Apologies to the rest of you, but only a trombone player appreciates a well oiled slide. Apply slide cream in moderation to the inner legs of the trombone slide for a silky smooth glide.
