    Yamaha synthetic oil regular, works perfect for my trumpet, valves always clean.

    Ultra Pure, best oil I have found in 25 years of searching, there are still some I have not tried yet.

    Had a bottle of H2Oil given to me by my repairer when it first came out here, worked fine in my Selmer piston valve French horn, not used it in trumpets.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Al Cass for years then switched to Hetmans 1,2,& 3. Have a lot of others that came with the horns I've collected. Most interesting oil is the Holton "Electric Oil" #2. Price with plain cap $.30, with dropper, $.35!!!

    Hetman oil for me too (light or regular oil on my new trumpets, classic on my older ones).

    Ultra pure works good but evaporates quickly and I find I have to oil more than once in a practice session in the summer time. Al Cass is good but the smell a little strong compared to synthetic types. The Holton was long a favorite of mine, only non synthetic with very little smell and really fast, does not evaporates too quickly. Haven't tried the Yamaha synthetic or blue juice.

    Ultra Pure for me have tried many others, but Ultra Pure works best in newer equipment. For rotary I find that Al Cass works great for valves.
