The extensive range of Hetman ® Musical Instrument Lubricants constitutes an application-specific system of advanced instrument care for the discriminating musician. This system of lubricants was developed to go beyond the limitations of conventional oils and provide a new level of instrument performance and longevity. Ongoing wear and weakening of the instrument's air seal due to improper lubrication are serious threats to the performing artist. The negative effects include unsure response, diminishing resonance and clarity, erratic intonation, and unreliable action. An extensive research and development project was therefore undertaken to engineer a comprehensive system of lubricants that would satisfy the following criteria:

  • Leading-Edge Technology - each lubricant embodies the most advanced technology, providing superior, longer-lasting performance, and protection against wear and corrosion.
  • Compatibility - each lubricant is compatible with conventional petroleum-based oils, avoiding potential gumming problems associated with some synthetics.
  • Application-Specific - each lubricant's viscosity, and formulation is designed for its specific application.
  • Easy Application - each lubricant is packaged with a dispensing system that allows convenient application to the most difficult-to-reach lubrication points.
  • Application Guide - an easy-to-follow application guide is available that describes the suggested use of each product.
