wear and weakening of the instrument's air seal due to
improper lubrication are serious threats to the performing
artist. The negative effects include unsure response,
diminishing resonance and clarity, erratic intonation, and
unreliable action. An extensive research and development
project was therefore undertaken to engineer a comprehensive
system of lubricants that would satisfy the following

between quick action and protection of vital components.
Hetman® lubricants are formulated in special
viscosity grades that meet the specific requirements of the
artist, and best suit the individual character of the
artist's instrument. Performers are afforded the feel and
confidence of a smooth, consistent action, while the
