ROTARY VALVE INSTRUMENT BALL JOINT OIL 60ML BY STEINER MUSIC
Our Ball Joint Oil is ideal for those Rotary Valve Instruments which have ball joint linkages. Its higher viscosity makes it more effective than a standard Bearing Oil in this situation. It is also useful for worn linkages, pivot screws, screw bell threads, valve cap and stem threads.
Advice: Lubricating Rotary Valve Instruments
Do bear in mind that it will not just be enough to oil the valve rotor on your instrument. A higher viscosity Bearing and Linkage Oil should be applied to the bearings at the top and bottom of the rotor spindle, under the valve caps. This oil is also suitable for mechanical actions/linkages. Tuning Slide Grease or Tuning Slide Oil should be applied to clean slide legs. Where the instrument has ball-joint linkages then a higher viscosity Ball Joint Oil will be more effective than Bearing Oil. Steiner Music produces each of these required lubricants with most of them in various grades according to valve condition. Please see separate listings.
