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.

As a keen amateur musician, I appreciate the need to keep my instrument well-lubricated.

This particular product was recommended to me by a friend, who claimed it cured his troublesome 'handslide action'. Although I knew Phil didn't own a trombone, in this case he was right: Trombotine really is the best trombone slide lubricant on the market.

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.

Using this on an old trombone from a pawn shop, King 606. I tried various oils and creams (not Slide-O-Mix) and while occasionally it slid smoothly it usually didn't, and I was constantly reapplying stuff. That's history. I put it on the way another reviewer suggested (thanks Spunkygal!) and it was smooth as glass from that point on. Play it every day and I have not had to reapply the Trombotine or spray it with water since I first applied it one week ago. I was so impressed that I put some on the rails to my sliding glass door, it really needs to be taken apart and cleaned to make it slide better but I can't because I have burglar bars. Slidin' good now!

I'm a professional brass player (trumpet/flugelhorn), and I started teaching myself trombone. Trombotine was recommended to me by a fellow trombone player. He is a professional, and has been playing for many years, and swears by it. After using it, it's not difficult to see why.

Trombotine is basically a slide cream, but highly effective (more so than other brands, one would argue). A SMALL amount should be applied to/smoothed over your slide. Add a spritz of water from your water bottle, and voila! Your slide will move effortlessly. All you will then need is your water bottle handy when your slide becomes sluggish. Trombotine works in tandem with the water, and is only applied sparingly and sporadically when needed (which is not very often if applied correctly and watered regularly).

This single tube should last you a very long time. My friend said he has owned his current Trombotine tube for over a year. Highly recommended product for either the beginning player, or the seasoned professional.

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.

I've used this for years. Used to use slide o mix, but switched to this when I got my Edwards. It can form some residue, but that usually happens if you let it just sit there. But then, that's just bad slide care. So, don't be dumb and it will work well

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.
