Review: Slide Grease for Brass Instruments
Slide Grease for Brass Instruments, a seemingly absurd review but quite serious. If you play a brass instrument and are still using Vaseline (petroleum jelly) on your slides – as I was until quite recently – then it’s time to enter the 21st Century and switch to a proprietary product!
Grease sticks are small, odourless, quick and easy to apply, nowhere near as messy as Vaseline, and cheap! In addition, I feel that the grease doesn’t dry out as quickly as Vaseline, and therefore offers effective lubrication for longer.
After having been introduced to proprietary slide grease, I have no wish to return to using Vaseline.
