    Valve Oil and Slide Grease Combo

    Denis Wick Valve Oil with PTFE (Teflon beads)
    Valves do not stick, even when completely dried out.

    Hetman's #7 Slide Gel
    Does not oxidize and turn brown.
    Convenient squeeze bottle helps in laying down a thin bead.

    Thanks to all that recommended the Hetman's #7.

    I have used both exclusively since receiving my new Besson 2056 baritone.
    Excellent combination, especially for new horn break-in.

    Is this the valve oil you're referring to?



    I've been using the Yamaha synthetic - which is excellent - but still leaves a bit of residue at the bottom of the valves like Hetman's does. Not as bad as Hetman, but still there.

    Thanks.
