Blue Juice for me too.
Although, Hetman's is fantastic.
Alisyn works great for me in all my horns.
Kinda like asking what's your favorite color; lots of opinions with really no right answer
That said, I like Hetman's also because they make piston oils and slide lubes in a variety of viscosities that can be tailored to different horns' needs and an individual's desired "feel". They can also be interchanged without concern for incompatability. Their products are readily available, and can be ordered at a very reasonable cost through WWBW and others.
Oh, and my favorite color is blue.........
I am going to try some different oils for my trumpet. See what works best.
ive been using T2 for quite a while and have never noticed a strong odor? hm maybe its just my crazy nose. im gonna check out the ultrapure, i have a 1937 handcraft imperial coming in a week or two and ive heard good things about the ultrapure on vintage horns
Used Al Cass in HS and college, then after my 25 year haitus. Had problems with valves sticking on high humidity days and switched to ultra pure, no problems since.
Ultrapure is the bomb, I use it for almost any horn!
Having that said, La Tromba is really good for older and worn valves IMHO,
if you can stand the synthetic banana smell
Ultra Pure for pistons, Hetman for rotaries.
In the past I have used/tried Bach, Holton, Selmer and AlCass, but Ultrapure is the best for me.
C.G. Conn made a wonderful oil a few years back, even beating Al Cass, so I bought quite a load of it (something like a carton of 24 bottles). Still living off that, and the Stomvi oil supplied with my Stomvi trumpets. The Conn is now slowly giving out, and I have heard that they don't make it any more... have to find out whether that's true.
I have never heard of so many oils in my life!
