I guess I missed something!

Please send your vintage Cold Cream to me!

Otherwise, it's that Yammy stuff for all my horns. But I use it a little differently. I squeeze a bottle into a pint sprayer full of distilled water and spray it on. Makes a great deodorant, too!

Yup - this is the modern scene.  I have used all these and they are all excellent.  I use the Yamaha and Rapid Comfort regularly on newer or otherwise good slides.

And I also agree that the creams (trombotine, mostly for me) are better for older or scratchy slides. 


Hints:
  • Do not leave Yamasnot or Slide-O-Mix (SOM) in a hot car.
  • The slide must be very, very clean to start.
  • SOM drys and gets grainy after about a week. Clean horn. Advantage Yamasnot.

Older bottles of Yamasnot are labeled Trombone slide "oil", what you want is Yamaha "YAC1021P"
