Spit corks or valve corks?
Saxophone neck grease--various woodwind cork grease. I suppose you could use it on your spit valve corks, but I wouldn't use it on valve corks.
I agree. Thanks.
Cork grease is for woodwind instruments. In the old days companies did not merchandise the hell out of stuff. A medium lubricant was used for many different things and no one complained about the “feel” being wrong. A less decadent way of saying “good enough”!
It is thick grease for slides that you don't want to be able to move too easily. It is thick and sticky. Good for the tuning slide and 2 nd. Valve slide, and the third slide dump on Bach Bb trumpets. Not good for first and thrid valve slides.
I use it on all my slides, but cut it with valve oil on the 1st and 3rd slides so they move easily.
Used it until I discovered anhydrous lanolin. Just as sticky, but easier to wash off.
yea. I use 50/50 lanolin/vasaline. Just wanted to try
Always used Vaseline.
You can't wash off Selmer slide grease. But you can wipe it off. One container will last many years. The last one I had cracked from age, but there was still grease left in it.
