 Long term storage question
Author: Matt Locker 
Date:   2021-05-10 17:48

Hello:
I have been storing my horn for a few years as there is no time to play both horn & clarinet, etc. The plan is to play again in the near future when retired & more available to play.

I oil the bearings top & bottom every few months with light bearing oil, as well as a few drops of rotary oil into the valves themselves. After this I work the valves to get the oil distributed. This worked fine for a long time but suddenly over the last few months a couple of the valves have been sticking when I pull it out for it's occasional oiling.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what I am doing wrong, or what I need to do in addition?

TIA,
Matt
