Fat Cat Valve Oil
Fat Cat Valve Oil is ultra-refined petroleum oil that chemical tests have shown to have fewer impurities than other popular valve oils. Fat Cat's viscosity ("thinness or thickness") is similar to other "fast" oils but works better because of its purity. So much so that it OSHA considers Fat Cat Oil as non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, non flammable and non hazardous. Be assured that Fat Cat Oil will work extremely well in trumpets, baritones, euphoniums, French horns and tubas of all makes and ages. Its precision applicator tip makes it especially easy to reach rotary valve bearings.Application
When trying Fat Cat Oil for the first time, clean off all old oil with soft cloth. It might be a good idea to give your horn a bath at this time, although it is not absolutely necessary. Mild dish detergent (Dawn "Power Plus" is great for this) run though the slides and valves (remove pistons before washing) will wash out old oil and sludge. For piston valves, coat both the valves and valve casing before reassembling. Rotary valve instruments will lubricate both the inner and outer valve bearings. A good squirt of Fat Cat Oil into the first tuning slide, which is then inserted all the way in (to avoid the grease of the slide), followed by a few rotations of the horn, will allow the oil to reach all the rotors. Next, wipe your tuning slides clean with a soft rag (if the old slide grease won't wipe off, use a little paint thinner on a cloth). Apply a thin coat of Fat Cat Tuning Slide Grease on the valve slide. If you get excess grease squeezing out of the tuning slide tube, you put on too much. Wipe excess and wash hands after use

The ONLY valve oil that I will ever purchase again!

Comments about Fat Cat Valve Oil:

I have been playing trumpet for over 40 years and I can honestly say that this valve oil is definitely the best I have ever used! I have numerous trumpets, a flugelhorn and cornet with them ranging from 1910- brand new, and this "FAT CAT" valve oil is the best ever! I will only use this and highly recommend it to other musicians.

        Good Valve oil! Followed what I have read and did not start using until after cleaning the valves. (Actually after cleaning entire horn but the valves would be really all you need to clean) - so far this stuff is great!

            Comments about Fat Cat Valve Oil:

            We've been looking for a product that enables smooth valve action with a minimum of fuss. We've had good results with the Fat Cat oil. Crud buildup seems inevitable in any horn though in this instance the nasty residue is minimal and easy to remove with regular cleaning of the valves and tubes.
