Fat Cat Instrument Oil, Tuning Slide Grease and Crème is the odorless, non-toxic way to lubricate your trumpet, horn, trombone and tuba. Manufactured in Manhattan since 1995 and sold world over, Fat Cat lubricants have been tested in the harsh environment of the high school band room and on the blistering hot drill fields of Arizona drum corps.
Fat Cat Oil is unlike other valve oils on the market. It is a organic blend in the same viscosity range as Al Cass, Yamaha, Zaja and others, but far outperforms them all. Why? Laboratory tests show that Fat Cat Oil contains far fewer impurities than other oils, since it uses cosmetic grade oils as its base. This contributes to the smooth valve feel and lack of smell. Some valve oils on the market add anti-foaming and wetting agents to their oils. Fat Cat does not dilute its oil with additives.
Fat Cat Valve Oil is ultra-refined petroleum oil that chemical tests have shown to have fewer impurities than other popular valve oils. The viscosity of Fat Cat is similar to other “fast” oils but works better because of its purity. So much so that it the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) considers Fat Cat Oil as non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, non-flammable and non-hazardous. You can be assured that Fat Cat Oil will work extremely well in trumpets, baritones, euphoniums, French horns and tubas of all makes and ages.
When trying Fat Cat Oil for the first time, clean off all old oil with soft cloth. Rotary valve players may give their horns a bath in mild dishwashing liquid to clean the valves. Coat both the valves and valve casing before reassembling. Rotary valve instruments will lubricate both the inner and outer valve bearings.
