Trombone Valve Oil ???


#1

OK , so i need to clean my bearings quick ,and i cant order anything right now so , i was wondering if trombone oil would be an ok solution to lube my bearing with after cleaning?


#2

Yes.


#3

Yeah, that’s considered thin lube. At least if it’s that holton valve oil stuff in the round bottles it is.


#4

It’s kind of risky. I wouldn’t do it ;). When I clean my bearings I never lube it after and it’s perfectly fine.


#5

ye i works my friend who play the trombone uses it on his all the time


#6

Ive played trombone for two years, and I used this lube for over a year. Its waaay better than thin lube

DO IT


#7

Yea, I use trumpet valve oil, I bet they are the same thing, and I prefer it over yyj thin lube.
And it is cheaper and comes in larger amounts.

You only need a tiny, tiny drop. Bout the size of a pin head.

Sounds like a good idea i might have to start using that instead ( I Play Trombone)


#10

I have valve oil but it is not liquid, it is like lip balm. Will it work the same as trombone valve oil? :slight_smile:


#11

I wouldn’t suggest using that.


(XxFlyingSquirrelxX) #12

No that wouldn’t work it is probably tuning slide or cork grease and i wouldn’t do anything but gunk up the bearing


#13

Ok, I won’t use it :slight_smile:

Sorry for jacking the thread, if I did :-[
