JM Lubricants

Meinlschmidt has been manufacturing valves for brass instruments since 1866.
What could be more logical than to develop a special care series for this purpose?

For us, the challenge was to ensure the perfect functioning and care of the instruments and at the same time to inspire the musicians with their sensitive feeling for the finest nuances of their instruments.

Our new care series for your instrument

The right lubricants were needed to develop the oils for the various applications. The first task was to define the appropriate product properties.

We attached particular importance to an odourless product that guaranteed smooth operation and protection against corrosion and wear on the instrument, as well as compatibility between the synthetic oils. JM oils also had to be compatible with conventional petroleum-based products.
The high demands placed on lubricants eventually led to the development of various synthetic products in different viscosities, some even in the form of a gel.

The products developed in cooperation with a laboratory then had to prove themselves in practice. For this purpose, the various care products were extensively tested by us in production and by professional musicians.

Once the lubricants had been defined, a solution had to be found to insert them into the bottlenecks of the instruments without having to disassemble them completely. An oval bottle with appropriate dosing attachments was chosen as the container. A Needle oiler was selected as an option.

Our care series:

Another special concern was a sustainable and future-oriented Co² / climate-neutral production, which we were able to implement with a strong partner.

The instruments of the musicians can now be easily oiled with the best possible lubricant at the right places. The product series for the most different valves, slides and joints, which resulted from this development, is now distributed by us under the brand name JM maintenance products.
