For Flugelgirl ref fluids
Flugelgirl - what do you recommend for French Horn slides and valves. Thanks.
I use a mix of Berp #1 and Berp#8 on rotors, just a couple of drops on stem and bearing should do it. You can use #8 on slides if they are tight, otherwise I like a lanolin-based slide grease to help fill the space. Check slides occasionally to make sure they are clean, and get a professional clean yearly. You’d hate to know what I find in rotors!
I know I might be preaching to the choir with some of this, but it may be a help to those who don’t know how to care for rotor instruments!
