I have no idea if this is the right place to post this but i'm gonna go for it anyways.

Found a couple old bottles of Zaja valve oil. 1 bottle of Zaja Blue, and one mulberry scented. I've never heard of scented valve oil.
I tried the Blue and it's genuinely the best stuff i've ever used I'd definitely like to get more of it since the bottle is half empty. I'm looking at the website and it looks outdated and suggests it hasn't been updated since 2006. Is it still for sale? Is there anywhere i can get it? I just want to know before i spend money just to not receive anything.

Thanks ya'll

A lot of people really like Zaja oil - but ordering from the manufacturer could ... take a while (this was even if you were a dealer). The bacon scented oil was I think the most interesting scented option.

If you wanted more, I'll look around (online) for a store that has them in stock rather than ordering directly. If you search "zaja trumpetherald" in your search engine of choice, you can see there's a long history of delays.

Maybe I should order a pallet of Zaja and become the US Dealer! LOL

Seriously though, it's GREAT oil and I will still use it if it were easier to obtain.

I moved on from zaja blue quite a while ago to ultra pure. It was an easy move and ultra pure is always in stock.

+1

I really liked Zaja Blue Pro oil, but it was the worst to try to get when I ran out of it. I found an old but unused bottle of it in a wall locker in an office in National Guard Band offices at the armory and snagged it, but that's been gone for a while.

I've since moved on to Ultra Pure - IMO it's a slight step down, but at least I can find it easily enough.

A 3rd choice for me is Hetman valve oil - different weights depending on the horn I'm using, but I don't like it quite as much as I like Ultra Pure.

It used to be that I defaulted to Al Cass valve oil, but it's been a while since I've had any of that, and I'm not even sure how it stacks up next to some of those other choices.
