    It is also the valve most prone to damage.
    If you keep music in your case on top of your trumpet (and your trumpet is in the case on its side) the music will press against the 2nd valve slide. This pressure can cause the valve to stick.
    It is also very common for the trumpet to fall on that valve slide, or be set on a table upsdie down. All of these can cause the valve to stick.

    My friend has a Bach Strad 37
    and I don't know if this works for everyone
    but he mixes Blue Juice and Fast Oil
    It smells horrible and you can taste in when you play the horn
    but he NEVER!!!!!! has to re oil his horn as often as I do
    King Model 601 (my favorite horn so far)
