A unique range of brass instrument maintenance products made in the UK by brass players for brass players and endorsed by some of the worlds leading brass players and bands.

We all know that buying a quality brass instrument is an expensive purchase, we also all know we should be proactive in looking after our investment, to make sure the instrument looks good, sounds great and stop sticky valves and stuck slides to ensure years of happy playing.

Through the history of brass, players have cleaned their instruments with washing up liquid, many of which contain salt. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that water plus salt results in possible corrosion, so it was vital that we created a kit that was eco-friendly, highly effective and didn't cause damage to any delicate finishes or components. 

The range has been tested by local brass bands to the factory and we received 100% positive feedback about the product. This was the reaffirmed when the range was personally endorsed by Mark Wilkinson- Soloist and Principal Cornet of Fodens Band, Dr Brett Baker- International Trombone Soloist & Programme leader for Music Arts at the University of Salford and the World famous Fodens Band.


The reasons why: -

As you know you should clean your instrument on a regular basis. When playing you are emitting saliva into your instrument, saliva contains germs, mucus, etc. that can mix together with valve/slide oil to form a biofilm in your instrument. Whilst human saliva is 99.5% water, it also contains electrolytes, mucus, enzymes, anti bacterial and bacterial compounds such as secretory lgA and lysozyme.

Regular cleaning helps to stop bacteria build up preventing illnesses such as Common Cold, Influenza and Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (Trombone Players Lung).


b# have created the "Keep it Clean Scheme" to help bands encourage players to look after their instruments usually the bands biggest asset, look after their own health by having clean instruments and helping bands raise some hard earned funds.
