Looking for people to try lubes

Postby ResilienceOils » Fri Mar 16, 2018 7:24 pm

Hello,
I am looking for some musicians to check out my new product and give me feed back. I have little cred in the tuba world, but have had rave reviews all throughout the land. If anyone would like some free samples of resilienceoils.com please send me email. matt@resilienceoils.com and I will send you some samples! I am only trying to produce the highest quality products on the market.
Thanks,
ResilienceOils

You may want to consider becoming a sponsor if you plan to hawk your wares here.

I'm going to allow this one for now because he's giving away free samples in exchange for feedback. We can talk sponsorship packages later.

I appreciate all of the interest in trying out the product. I have about 30 people as the email has been a feeding frenzy. I have run out of padding shipping containers and have more on order so if you aren't in the first round I apologize and will get some sent to after the packaging arrives!
Thanks Again!

No problems at my end. Just whenever you can.

I just got mine and I'm trying out it out today! I just have to clean out my tuba before I try the valve oil. I'll update once I've used it for a bit.

I tried some on two rotary horns yesterday, a Mirafone and a clone, and it worked GREAT. The kick gel was not thick enough for the clone slides, but the main tuning slide grease worked great on them. Everything worked wonderfully as intended on the Mirafone. Will try them on two valved horns today.

Nice to see TubeNet already filling some of the market void for people displaced by the demise of the craigslist personals section.

First Impressions:
-The Professional Valve Oil coated my valves very easily unlike the Blue Juice I was previously using (I deep cleaned my tuba before using the resilience oils).
-The Professional Valve Oil was covering my entire valve but the valve felt a little clanky (it could just be because I went from bone dry to adding oil or that the tuba is 20+ years old so it has more wear on the valves).
-The MTS Grease is THICK. I realized that the Kick Gel was meant to be used with it to thin it out. The 2 Combined very well and my valve slides have never moved so fluently! (I used petroleum jelly before and it barely lasted about a week).
-The MTS Grease gets very stuck onto your hands because it's sticky and thick.
-The MTS Grease had a slight odor that was pungent like nail polish.
-The Kick Gel was thicker than the valve oil but thin enough to even out the thickness (almost felt like the thickness of baby oil).

These were just my first impressions and my opinions might change after more use of them but, overall these products were great! The valve oil very easily coated my valves but, there seemed to be space in between the valve and the valve casing. The valve oil is probably meant for tighter valve casings unlike my old 20 year old yahama that's been misused by freshman at my school. I personally would not want a slide grease that is so thick that I need kick gel to thin it out but, they do run smoothly together. Only time will tell how fast the products wear out.

Used them on two piston horns today - one clone and one American Frankenhorn. I am totally sold on the valve oil - it worked as well on pistons as on my rotors yesterday. To me, far superior to Blue Juice. Again, the kick gel was too thin for the first valve slides, but the MTS grease was perfect on them. I think the lesson here is that if you have a slide that is in really great shape, either from the factory or has been adjusted and made to work super smooth, the gel works great - if not use the slide grease. This has absolutely no reflection on the gel, but rather on the fitment of most tubas. Folks, this stuff is no gimmick - it really works.

Once again, a quick first impression: The kick slide gel worked very well on my 1st slide, very smooth and quick. That slide is very well-fitted, so that jibes with some other comments above. I found the MTS grease very thick and slow--I'll try thinning it with the Kick Slide stuff. The valve oil didn't seem to make much difference on the rotors of my 186, they still work very well.
I just tried it yesterday, so I will have to see if this all changes over time and usage. Positive, though, so far. 8)
Bearin' up!

It worked VERY well on my Mirafone, but not on the Chinese clones or the King slide. As I said before, not a knock against the product, but against the horns I used it on!

As a follow-up, today I tried both lubes on my 150-yo bass saxhorn, in which the slides are sadly lacking good alignment. Applied liberally, this was unable to make them work smoothly. [memo to self: it is high time you got them aligned properly!]
The effect on the 186 was pretty good, the old one not so much. I really like the kick slide gel on my 1st slide on the 186.
