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.
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.
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 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.
