REKA Superslide is an advanced product that satisfies even the most demanding musicians. Application is considerably simplified through the use of only one bottle -- no additional water is necessary! On top of that, the player is rewarded with a fantastic, long-lasting, free-flowing action.
Of major concern to all trombone players:
The main requirements for a trombone slide lubricant are:
Easy application. This should involve, whenever possible, only one component from a single bottle, without the addition of water and without complicated instructions or mixing.
The consistency of the lubricant should be such that it stays where it is applied and doesn’t run down the slide.
The lubricant film should not be grease-based or similar to grease. Grease has a semi-solid consistency, and such a film would tend to be transported by the slide motion. The resulting surface coating would be uneven and wave-like, ultimately leading to slide drag and a drastic reduction in function.
Reliable, free-flowing action must be distributed evenly over an extended playing period. There should be no abrupt experience of slide drag or sticking as the lubricant film dissipates.
The point in time when this film starts to dissipate should be apparent and well in advance, ensuring that continuation of undisturbed play can be guaranteed.
A single lubrication should last for between 8 and 12 hours of playing.
It should be possible to apply additional lubricant without first having to remove residues of spent lubricant and without the danger of tarnishing -- which further leads to sticking or slide drag.
Slide drag should not occur even if the amount of lubricant applied is somewhat generous. This means that the quantity of lubricant necessary, relevant to the type of trombone, is too specifically defined.
The additional application of water is an extra burden for every trombone player and should, therefore, be unnecessary.
