Blue Juice brand
For all Brasswind valves
** NEW **
Blue Juice oil is for all valved instruments, piston and rotary.
This includes the trumpet, cornet, baritone (bari) horn, tuba,
sousaphone, french horn, euphonium, flugelhorn,
and all other valved instruments.
BLUE JUICE is a light, fast, refined petroleum product
that's especially effective on close-tolerance valves.
What distinguishes this valve oil
- aside from its distinctive blue coloring -
is the anti-corrosion agent it contains for extra protection.
Blue Juice valve oil was scientifically developed
by a Chemical/Lubrication Engineer who is also a Trumpet player.
It was designed specifically to provide:
Staying power to minimize the need for re-lubrication
Excellent protection against mold and bacteria growth.
Blue Juice valve oil is used by professional players and beginners alike.
BLUE JUICE has built in inhibitors to retard bacterial growth,
especially important when it is a long time between clean-outs.
BLUE JUICE is also non-corrosive to all metals
used in the construction of musical instruments.
In fact, it helps keep instruments internally clean,
solving a problem all rotary valve musicians are very aware of.

P A Y M E N T :
Buyer is expected to go through
the eBay PAY NOW process
within 3 days of purchase.
Payment is due within 10 days of purchase.
You do NOT have to have a PayPal account
to pay by credit card.
When you go to Pay Now, if you do not have a PayPal account
you are directed to a secure site
where you can put in your credit card info.
You may choose to establish a PayPal account
for ease of payment in the future,
or choose not to do so.
Please complete all your purchases,
then if you have more than one item,
click REQUEST TOTAL from your WON column in My Ebay.
I will send you an invoice with the correct
s&h for your combined order.
EBay shipping setup does not reflect the real world.
There is no way to set up combined shipping that works right. I have to "see what fits."
If you pay for several items without waiting for an invoice you will get the fastest shipping
and will probably get a refund for combined shipping.
<><><><><><> Overseas: <><><><><><><>
The above is true only if the ship-to address
is in the US or possessions.
You should work out arrangements in advance
for shipping out of the US or possessions.
As a veteran myself, I apply the courtesy
of shipping to APO and FPO addresses at the same cost as US addresses,
in spite of the labor-intensive Customs Form processing.
The same shipping cost applies to all US Possessions
(Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Is., etc.) as for US addresses.
S H I P P I N G :
The default shipping method for most items
is USPS 1st Class Mail.
Most items can also be shipped by Priority Mail or Express Mail.
***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****
I combine shipping
on items that can be shipped together.
You will receive at least $1 off the individual s&h cost of each item after the 1st.
This is done automatically in eBay.
For many items, the discount is more, and this will be reflected in a manual invoice
I will send when you request it.
If you buy several items and pay immediately,
you will likely overpay on s&h.
In this case, I will send you a PayPal refund.
(Please understand if the refund takes 2 or more weeks.
I prioritize fast shipping, and often get backed up on refunds.)
If your purchase is over $10,
I may deduct insurance cost before calculating your refund.

Please note that SHIPPING and HANDLING charges
include the cost of labor and materials
to create your package ("handling").
It is expensive and labor-intensive
to order, stock, inventory, and store large boxes of envelopes, bubble wrap,
foam wrap, plastic wrap, tape, packing peanuts, etc.
It is also labor intensive to package items as carefully as we do.
Please understand we have to get $2 or more
($4 or more on overseas) for even a small package
just to cover these "handling" costs.
I specialize in fast shipment.
Over 99% of all orders are shipped
the same or next business day from receipt of payment.
In most cases, if I have your payment by noon,
your order will go out the same day.
Often I can include even later payments, sometimes up to 3:00 EST.
Occasionally I have a situation that may delay your order.
This is less than 1% of all orders.
In every other case,
Please consider QUICK SHIPPING as a valuable service
included in your Shipping and Handling charge.
I have a wide variety of supplies
for woodwind and brasswind instruments.
Find other items you need
easily in my EBAY STORE
Link will open in NEW Window, or paste URL in browser address box.
Insurance must be included in S&H
in all orders $30 and over,
(as well as items with poor shipping histories --
This includes many items that ship in tubes).
This is $1.80 for up to $50, $2.80 for up to $100, etc.
For all overseas orders, insurance implies Express Mail,
starting at $46, but including TRACKING.

** E Mails and eBay Msgs **
I spend many hours a day answering emails.
I try to answer them as promptly as possible.
Please observe the following:
Read listing carefully before asking questions.
Please do not mark "hide my email address" in eBay, as this often means my answer will not reach you.
Double-check: you MUST have the correct email address listed in eBay.
Make sure you don't have me blocked or spammed. Set my email address in your email list immediately after making the purchase.
Don't expect me to answer by eBay messages. It is more time-consuming, I cannot send you links or pictures, other limitations, problems, etc., all add up to TOO MUCH TROUBLE. I can respond by email to 3-5 messages for every one I can do by logging into eBay.
After a few days, resend an email if you did not get a response. Sometimes emails are lost in cyberspace, occasionally they get lost here.
You may remember what our thread is about, but I respond to hundreds of emails a week, and do not necessarily remember. Please include the past portions in replies to refresh my memory.
