    The lad in our local music shop said they did not have any High Note Grease in stock and did not know when they would be getting any, ( I think he is a drummer ).

    Played it twice, no reference to what sort of mouthpiece he's using. Disappointing omission.

    I ran into the same problem, I think the guy I spoke with was a sax player. I figured everyone could use the recipe while this shortage of comercially avaliable High Note Grease is being addressed.

    It's all in the grease. We're even just assuming he was using a mouthpiece!

    Maybe he wasn't? After all, isn't your lead pipe just an extremely small mouthpiece? Because everyone knows a smaller mouthpiece = high notes right?ROFL

    Do I dare ask one of my instrument vendors for "high note grease"? I do presume if one answers as has been put here, I wouldn't want to do business there.

    High notes are an option one must specify when ordering a horn. I thought everyone knew that........ :D

    Is that what the High Note Grease is for then, to keep the horn's High Note Mechanism functional? This is all beginning to make sense. :huh:
