Your not involved so don't even.
Everyone who tries to read your posts is involved. Chicken and Pig?
You're not involved, so don't even...
Don't even what, chairborne ranger?
I did proffer my experience in an attempt to soothe Anto's nerves, but he seems to be quite consternated.
Hey I am not constapted
If I were to go with something other than "tuning slide grease" that is specifically manufactured for brass instruments, I think that I would use "anhydrous lanolin" from any pharmacy. I think that this is what many of the specially formulated tuning slide greases are derived from anyways. A tub or tube of lanolin from the pharmacy will be much cheaper than the music store stuff, add a drop of valve oil and your 1st and 3rd valve slides will move like lightning.
Used this through much of High School 35 years ago..........
I don't think that the woodwind stuff will have any ill effects as long as you're happy with the consistency (might give you a bit of a nasal tone though.........)
I have several horns, and I have several different slide grease containers of different consistencies from different makers. The slide treatment I like the best? Petroleum jelly. Not too thin, not too thick, and cost effective. Slides stay put when I leave them alone but move effortlessly when I want them to.
I think I know what you mean - but I better ask. What is constapted?
I think that the BlueJuice comment was made tongue in cheek because there are more popular options, but if it works and you like that brand, it should not harm anything.
