Care of Your French Horn

Place 3 drops of oil in the lead pipe each time the instrument is played. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THE ROTORS. Your French Horn requires no other special maintenance on a weekly basis.


Once a month, the tuning slide should be cleaned with a snake brush, lukewarm water, and liquid dishwashing soap. After cleaning the tuning slide, apply a small amount of tuning slide grease to the slide. NEVER USE VASELINE in place of slide grease. Never force the slide in or out. Use thumb pressure only in the center of the slide brace.
