About J. Meinlschmidt
Meinlschmidt has been manufacturing valves for brass instruments since 1866. What could be more logical than to develop a special care series for this purpose?
The challenge was to ensure the perfect functioning and care of the instruments and at the same time to inspire the musicians with their sensitive feeling for the finest nuances of their instruments.
The right lubricants were needed to develop the oils for the various applications. The first task was to define the appropriate product properties.
Meinlschmidt attached particular importance to an odourless product that guaranteed smooth operation and protection against corrosion and wear on the instrument, as well as compatibility between the synthetic oils. JM oils also had to be compatible with conventional petroleum-based products.
The high demands placed on lubricants eventually led to the development of various synthetic products in different viscosities, some even in the form of a gel.
The products, which were developed in cooperation with a laboratory, then had to prove themselves in practice. For this purpose, the various care products were extensively tested by Meinlschmidt in production and by professional musicians.
Once the lubricants had been defined, a solution had to be found to insert them into the narrowest parts of the instruments without having to disassemble them completely. An oval bottle with appropriate dosing attachments was chosen as the container. A needle oiler was selected as an option.
