    How high does it go? AND you failed to give us a price. I may want BOTH tubes if they go high enough. Thanks!

    Tobylou8, I get almost double my normal range, but these tubes aren't for sale, it's all I have left.
    Maybe Rowuk knows something about it, I thought there was an old guy in Germany that was making the stuff.

    It's not the lack of grease so much as the lack of goldfish legs to make it!

    I am the old guy making it!

    Griebenschmalz from very special high flying geese. That is thinned out with a very special Obstler. The real secret is in the tubes though. You have to get them tied to keep the secret brew from leaking out.

    This grease is applied in homöopathisch quantities to the special muscles specifically responsible for the double octave that starts with C. If you apply it to those designed for the lower octave, the notes just slip out of the bell and fall onto the ground.

    The effect can be greatly multiplied by grounding the bell of your horn with my spezial Erdungskabel.


    Disclaimer: This high performance Zaubermittel does not work with "fast air". That ends up blowing the grease particles against the back wall, ruining the paint.

    Hey Robin, I thought your secret was a cold beer as a warm down?

    There is a new grease from Dr. Faustus. Allows you to play high but it's carcinogenic.
