Trombotine is great. Not only does it work at least as well as any other slide cream, but if you buy one tube, it will last years--chances are you'll lose it before you use it all up. I've had the same tube since 2004. Enjoy.

I've used this stuff on my trombone for my ten years as a trombonist (trough out middle school, high school, and now college) and never had issue with it. I've experimented with slide-o-mix and the Yamaha oil, but I find this works longer and has a 'creamier' action that I prefer. I usually lube up once a month or so, and it works fine for me (I play daily), and the only thing you have to do is spray it a few times with water every once and a while. Great product, and the king of slide lubes.

I bought it for my son as his private teacher recommended. The grease is easy to apply, absolutely necessary to play trombone.

I first learned of Trombotine from a US Navy Band instrument repairman in about 1979 when I was on active duty at the US Naval Academy band. I had just bought a new Bach 50 B3 bass trombone, and he suggested that I try it...he was impressed with the way it made a slide...well...SLIDE! Prior to using Trombotine I had used Conn SuperSlick for a number of years. Trombotine uses a similar principle...clean the inner and outer slides properly first, then put a small amount of it on the slide stockings (extra emphasis on the words "small amount" should be noted...it goes a long way), then after it's thoroughly rubbed on the stockings and up and down the rest of the slide, spray water on it, and play. One application typically lasted me for a full 4-hour 18-piece big-band dance gig, and definitely long enough for a 2-hour-plus rehearsal. I've used nothing else since I found it, and a tube lasts a LOOOOOOONG time if you apply the right amount...which isn't much. When one of my sons appropriated the last tube I had to use on his trombone (before ordering another here on Amazon) I was sort of lamenting not having the above-mentioned repair shop to buy a new one, but was VERY happy to find it here! Considering that I don't play nearly as much as I used to, my guess is that this tube will now last me literally for the rest of my playing life...as long as I don't LOSE it somewhere! BUY some...if you are a playing pro (or student, for that matter) using a slide grease (not oil, then grease...the two don't mix...you need to use one or the other, or risk ruining your slide!), and you use it correctly, you WILL be happy!

I used this both in high school and am using it in college. It works really well and keeps my slide going. It did a good job with a dent in my slide, but during that time I was having to reapply frequently.

Be careful when using this product. With Trombotine, less is more! Clean the slide thoroughly inside and out, and place a tiny tiny tiny little bit of this on the end of each stocking. When I say tiny, I mean about the size of a small bead. Rub it into each slide until it is gone, and then work it thoroughly into the slide using the slide back and forth. Add a tiny amount of superslick slide treatment to each stocking and work it in again with the slide, spray some water, and enjoy a terrific slide.

I have used many different lubricants in the past, including Yamaha "slide oil" (not oil, the stuff in the white bottle), Slide o Mix, Slide o Mix rapid comfort, and some others. After cleaning my slide well and using this I have not looked back to the other stuff. This does not separate like the Slide o Mix does, it works well, and makes the slide consistent and smooth. I reapply about once every 2 weeks.

I use this on both my main trombones, an Edwards t-350 and a Yamaha Custom YSL-891Z.

Lasts for ages, stays slick for months.

I don't play as often as I used to (2 times a week typically), but have moved to trombotine from slide-o-mix. I like how little I have to use and that it re-wets with water and is good for quite a while after that. I typically clean my slide monthly and put a little trombotine on the stockings. Recently, I had 4 months where I didn't play - from the beginning of April until prep for July 4th weekend concerts. Hadn't cleaned the slide, but with a little water, it came right back to glass smooth action in no time. I'm 100% converted from Slide-O. I've even used it on a couple older horns with poor slides and they were much smoother than other compounds I had tried. With a good, straight slide, the action is smooth as it gets.

Trombotine is probably the best slide lubricant available, but one minor complaint from me is the tube it comes in. I am having the problem right now where the metallic tube has developed stress cracks and is leaking cream on the inside of my instrument case and on my furniture if I lay it anywhere. The metal is too stiff and gets creased easily, so I wind up wasting cream because it's hard to squeeze out when it's mostly used up. For the same reason it can be difficult to carefully control how much you squeeze out on the trombone slide each time. These are minor complaints, and I guess I will buy more, but I would rate 5 stars if they came up with better packaging.
