See VACATION NOTICE (below description) for details Metal Rod ("Ram Rod") For cleaning Trombone Slides ** NEW ** in Package Here is a tool that will help you get the straight portions of your trombone slide completely clean. Chrome plated steel rod with slot for attachment of your cotton patch or cloth (cloth material not included). Rod is 31.5 inches long. This consists of a chrome-plated steel rod. One end is looped for a handle, the other end has a slot for attachment of your patch or cloth (cloth material not included). To clean the slide and make it work as well as it can, you may use the method described by Andrew B. Spang on his website: Click here to visit his site for instructions. Here is another person's instructions for comparison:Take your trombone cleaning rod, insert the corner of your flow of cheesecloth through the loop an inch or two and then, carefully start winding the rod tightly in the cloth toward the center of the cloth at about a 45 degree angle, keeping it tight all the way. When you get to the center of the cloth, grab the cloth tightly and turn the rod to be at a right angle to the cloth and continue to tightly wind the cloth on the rod until it is approximately half the diameter of the tube you are going to use it in. Now, grab the resulting wad tightly and twist the cleaning rod to firm the wad. Then bend the cloth over double, this should be about the size of the bore now. Holding the wad firm, grab the flow of cloth below the wad in the vicinity of where the round loop end of the rod is. Loop the cloth flow around your hand so that when you tighten your grip the flow of cloth tightens the end of the rod and tries to bring the end of the rod to you, like a violin bow. Your hand is wound once with cloth and holding the loop, cushioned by the cloth. This way you can push the rod in the slide and have it take the cloth in with it and pull the cloth out bringing the rod with it. This way you will never have to worry about getting the cloth stuck in the slide and at the same time have a very firm pack of cloth with which to clean and polish inside the bore with "Brasso", which I have used for about 50 years or whatever brass polish you prefer. At this point I just dip the end of the firmly packed cloth on the rod into the Brasso about an inch or so, insert it into the slide tube and proceed to clean the slide, while firmly holding the rail or tube with which I am working. All that is necessary is to "pump" the rod and cloth assembly in and out 5 or 6 times in each rail or tube. By having the cloth tight packed, you will do a better job of cleaning and you may well push out some other irregularities in the tubing. Briefly, the process I use, using this method is: Clean the slide with Brasso by briskly pushing the rod down the tube with about an inch or so of Brasso showing on the cloth, working it in and out to clean and polish the bore. Remove the dirty wad from the slide tube; disassemble the cloth/rod unit, cut off the Brasso wet used part of the cloth and re-wrap as before, over to the center and then straight to half size. Tighten, fold and refit. Perhaps a half turn less to allow for movement now using cold cleaner. Dip the cloth about inch and a half into the cold cleaner, re-insert the rod and cloth back into the slide tube and work it in the same as you did with the Brasso. Remove the cloth/rod assembly from the tube. Cut off the solvent wet part and re-wrap using the same method as before. This time install it dry into the tube after having first blown the tube dry with compressed air or otherwise. You can use the solvent wet part to clean the inner slide and tuning slide rails and other jobs around the shop. Both professional and student slides gain benefit from this procedure. Proper cleaning will make most slides seem to work better, even if you dont do anything else. Therefore, proper cleaning should always precede any dent or alignment work.
