Review: Slide Grease for Brass Instruments

A photo showing a stick of slide grease in the foreground and, out of focus in the background a jar of Vaseline and two small slides from a brass instrument.

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.
