Hetman Tuning Slide


Item Details

This is a group of our premier lubricants for tuning slides.  These are designed and manufactured in the USA by Joe Hetman.  Hetman synthetic lubricants have a very smooth molecular structure.  These lubricants are especially slippery, do not build up, resist corrosion, and last a long time.  You'll need fewer applications of Hetman than of most other brands.

Hetman® Slide Grease Lubricants are designed for tuning slides and valve slides that are normally maintained in position once adjusted. The choice of several unique, nontoxic products allows for smooth, air-tight performance of both tight and loose fitting slides:

  • 6.5 Slide-Gel Light - A synthetic lubricant for close-fitting tuning slides.  Provides long-lasting seal and firm slide "feel/pull".  Will not bunch-up in slide tube ends.  Adhesive formula protects against corrosion and wear.  May be used together with Slide-Gel No. 7.
  • 7 Slide-Gel - The preferred synthetic lubricant for most tuning slides. A premium, hi-viscosity product that will not bunch-up in the ends of slide tubes. Adhesive formulation protects slides against corrosion and wear. 30ml bottle with special dropper tip applicator.
  • 7.5 Slide-Gel Plus - A synthetic lubricant of extra-heavy consistency for loose-fitting tuning slides.  Apply in small amounts (after lubricating with Slide-Gel No. 7) to obtain the desired "feel" or "pull" of slides.  Tacky synthetic formula keeps loose slides in place and airtight.  Adhesive formula protects against corrosion and wear.
  • 8 Premium Slide Grease - For those who prefer a long-lasting slide lubricant of heavy consistency, this premium slide grease keeps slides airtight and moving smoothly. 10cc jar or 10cc syringe applicator.
  • 10 Musical Instrument Grease - A multi-purpose musical instrument grease for brass and woodwinds.  This unique product features a nontoxic, synthetic lubricating grease packaged in a 10cc jar or a convenient, sealable, dispensing syringe. Applications include: flat springs and tracks (bronze & steel), pivot screws, clamp screws, wing screws, sax neck screws, linkage joints, lever hinges, ball joints, and threads (valve stems, valve caps and screw bells). In addition to superior wear protection and extreme pressure performance, this plastics-safe, synthetic grease is waterproof and helps to prevent rust. Available in 10cc jar or 10cc syringe applicator
