Color me flummoxed.
By Jeff Freeman
Just one more--super impressive. Less trouble than the old Slide-o-mix because it comes in one tube. Works better on my axe than slide cream, even when I apply the slide cream just right.
I find that it works better after a day or two...seems like you have to really get it worked in before it really cooks.
Follow up: I've been using this stuff now for about 8 weeks. It doesn't gum up the slide like traditional cream. I apply a little bit about every hour or so of playing time and it works great. I rarely have to spray any water on it, and the bottle seems to be lasting decently long. I suppose it will work out to be marginally more expensive than slide cream but I don't mind that on the basis of convenience.

This is a great product. Really left my slide lubricated. Even my teacher said it was in great condition. Recommend to all Trombone users. Only downside is that is kind of expensive just for slide oil. Worth it for the quality though.
UPDATE: May 2013
After many experiences using slide-o-mix, I have noticed it starts to dry up after a week or so. This makes your slide harder to move and annoying to clean off. I've never had this experience with slide cream. I'm rarely going to use this now to prevent it from drying.

This product is okay. It doesn't function properly when the weather is too cold or too hot. It seems to be very dry when it's cold and very thin when it's hot. I suggest the Yamaha Slide Oil. It is much thicker and will definitely last longer. I will only use this every now and then. Yamaha Slide Oil is still my "Go To" oil. However, 4 stars for this product. It still does the job right. Just clean your slide, shake this thing up and apply.
