Pope's Piss Valve Oil. I've been threatening this for years! This is my own valve oil - not synthetic, lasts long, works great and will make you smile. I guarantee you'll like it - or a full refund will be issued! 2-fl. Oz. As my friend and fellow hornist Fred Aldrich says: 'Pope's Piss is THE Shi#'.

Seriously the best maintenance fluid for your horn…ever!
Surprisingly thin (that's a good thing), with no chemical smell. I have an older Yamaha yhr 662 that likes a lot of very thin oil. When Hetman disappeared from shelves I ordered several alternatives from various stores and I am impressed with Pope's homegrown! If subsequent bottles are consistently this good, I've found a replacement!
Immediately, this oil worked! And lasted! It creates a very good seal between the valve and casing, and with French horn rotary valves, have a great feel and you can literally heat the tiny "snap" noise the valves make when actuated and closed. I've tried several major brand oils and I'm hooked.
Pope’s Piss valve oil is exactly the the type of oil my horn needs.
