Zaja Musical Products, LLC - CHOPS T.I.C. - Topical Injury Cream
yeah, this rules it out for me on all counts:
DO NOT USE ON BROKEN SKIN.
*NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS*
*JUST TRUMPET PLAYERS*
I use Zaja oil but no cream --- I use natural beeswax for my lips -- I think that is best.
I saw the broken skin comment and paused...
yeah its made from Arnica, I got recommended Arnica cream from an old teacher of mine, so tried it out used it alot when I did a short packed tour round germany with a jazz band, orchestra and wind band I played in a few years ago, 2 hour jazz lunchtime gig, then 2 hours worth of other stuff in the evening for 7 days, yeah might be able to do it now but was really hard then, used this Arnica cream and its really good stuff!
best bet is to stick it on over night and you feel all nice and refreshed the next day, like as if you havent played in 2 days refreshed its good stuff I think
do you think the open skin comment is just there to avoid a lawsuit?
If it wasn't tested on animals, how could it have been tested on trumpet players (rim shot!)?
For bruising, DMSO (get the highest grade) is supposed to work wonders. You can also mix it with different drugs and dose (or poison) people (or yourself) since it is a great solvent and works topically. Found about it the hard way at my first Grateful Dead concert and people had spray bottles containing DMSO and LSD. A weird, but wonderful time.
For that reason, I stick to good old Carmex after the gig, and work off the soreness the next morning. Safe and flashback free!
Chopsaver works wonders. It was also invented by a trumpet player who still plays at the professional level. I would not be trying the other things.
