High Speed Valve Springs for Trumpet!
Speed up the performance for your instrument! It doesn't matter how much you practice, your valve up-strokes will never get faster than your springs. Improved valve action doesn't just let you play fast passages faster, it also makes it easier to play lyrical passages more cleanly. These springs are a great upgrade for vintage horns as well, especially if you're experiencing any "bounce" in the valve action. Please email us at [email protected] if you're not sure which spring option to choose.

VS02 - for Schilke, Benge, Besson, King, Jupiter, Bauerfiend
VS03 - for Yamaha, Schilke Piccolo, German Trumpets
"These really brought some consistency to my facility. I felt the difference right away with just the right amount of tension and return when playing technical passages. Great product - I will invest in these often to maintain my instrument." -Tom Davis
Ultra Pure Valve Oil
Ultra-Pure Oils started in 1990 with custom blends of synthetic oils to develop the ideal lubricant for valves: Fast, light, and super-smooth with a little silky feel to it. Long-lasting and odorless. No build-up or staining. Fast-forward to today and you can find Ultra-Pure products in fine music stores and online shops the world over. Ultra-Pure Oils LLC is a family-owned and operated business. We care about the environment and recycle all our waste cardboard, plastic bottles, and any waste oils. Please remember to reuse or wash and recycle your bottle when it is empty.
We recommend that you oil your valves at least once a week. Of course, the best results will be oiling each day since the oil will help wash down any contaminants. A freshly oiled horn feels great!
Ultra-Pure Ultra-Light Valve Oil has a lighter and faster feel that players love. It is synthetic, odorless, and very long-lasting. Our Ultra-Light valve oil is thinner than the standard weight and is perfect for instruments with very tight pistons or rotors that would feel sluggish with the standard weight. We especially recommend this version for brand-new instruments, Schilke, Yamaha, CarolBrass, Monette, and Getzen and for the axial flow rotors of many trombones. It is also best for rotary valve trumpets and makes a great rotor oil on French horns.This style bottle has a child-resistant (push and turn) cap as required in the US and Europe.
Ultra-Pure Professional Valve Oil has a fast, light, and silky-smooth feel that players love. It is synthetic, odorless, and very long-lasting. Our Professional valve oil is the standard weight and is perfect for most instruments. It works well on pistons and rotors.
"8VA" Limited Edition
8VA means "an octave higher." So all you need for high notes is this valve oil, right? Ok, we're just kidding! Only practice and hard work will help brass players to develop their high range. Our "8VA" valve oil is the same fantastic formula as Ultra Pure Professional valve oil.
Ultra-Pure Black Label "Classic" Valve Oil is a little thicker than standard valve oil and is designed for older horns with worn pistons or rotors. The thicker oil helps fill in the space between the valve and the casing and allows the valve to operate without any sticking. If you have an older instrument with worn valves, give Black Label "Classic" a try!
Clean Stroke Valve Wash
A quick and easy way to clean your valves and valve casings.
Removes built up residue which contributes to less responsive valve action.
CLEAN-STROKE Valve Wash is a specially formulated detergent made at the Warburton factory.
"I applied the valve wash over the course of about 3 days, for roughly 6-7 hours of practice time. The results were positive! After wiping off the valves and re-applying oil, the valves were definitely improved. Faster and smoother. Be advised though... while good, this is a short term fix for sluggish valves. A professional cleaning is always preferable." -Chris Ballman
HW Brass Saver
The H.W.Trumpet Brass Saver Brush Pack includes a lead pipe pull-thru brush and a valve/tubing brush. Won't scratch or damage and will not get stuck. Use wet or dry! This is a product we use daily at ACB.
"This product is well-designed to do a simple job perfectly: to thoroughly clean a trumpet's valve casings and valve ports without abrasion or scratching, and without leaving bits of brush material behind. Light and compact, thus easy to pack in a traveling instrument maintenance kit that will fit in a trumpet case or gig bag." -Jim Lehrer
