    I was wondering if any one knows what the difference is between Hetman light piston Lubricant 1 and Hetman lubricant 2 valve oil is. Can I use either one on my getzen trumpet?

    Here's a link to Hetman's oils and other lubricants.

    I believe the only difference between #1, #2, and #3 is the thickness of the oil.

    To an extent, it's how you like your valve action and how extensive they are worn. The more the wear, the heavier oil you'll need. Yes, you can use either Hetman viscosity, but if you change brands, it is highly suggested you clean both your valves and valve casing vis don't mix oils.
