How do you clean a trumpet?

Luckily, brass instruments need less care than some musical instruments. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t need to be looked after. Trumpets require regular oiling and cleaning. The following tools are recommended when cleaning your trumpet: 

Small Cleaning Snake/Pipe Cleaner

Valve Casing Brush

Mouthpiece Brush

Dish Soap

Valve Oil

Slide Grease

Polishing Cloth

Sink, Small Tub or Other Container

Drums To Trumpets also offers cleaning kits for you to purchase to expedite this process. Once you have gathered all your cleaning tools, it’s time to take the trumpet apart. Start by removing the valves and placing them aside somewhere safe. Next, remove the slides starting with the first and ending with the main tuning slide. Removing the valves and slides should not require much force. If you have a piece that is sticking, we recommend taking your instrument to your local trumpet professional to remove the part. 

Now that you have the parts removed, you will need to clean the tubing and slides. Start by filling a sink or a container with enough warm water to submerge the entire trumpet. Add a few drops of dish soap to the water. Next, place the trumpet’s slides into the soapy water and allow them to sit for a few minutes. At this time, you can use your cleaning snake to clean inside the slides. Dry the slides by placing them onto a thick towel. After washing the slides, you can immerse the entire trumpet in the water to let it soak slightly. Gently run the cleaning snake through all of the tubing. Make sure to rinse the trumpet before allowing it to dry. 

When it’s time to clean your trumpet’s valves, do NOT completely immerse the valves. To clean the valves, use the cleaning snake clean the ports of the valves, and then rinse them with soap and water. Keep in mind that the metal point of your cleaning snake can damage your trumpet’s valves, so avoid making contact with this part of the cleaning snake. 

To reassemble your trumpet, oil the valves, first slide, and third slide. Now, grease the main tuning slide and second valve slide, but do NOT grease the third valve slide. If you follow this tutorial you should have a clean, undamaged trumpet. For extra tips, we recommend checking out some tutorials on YouTube. 

Should I clean my drum cymbals? 

Ultimately, this is a personal choice. Some drummers believe that the dirt and grime that builds on their cymbals adds warmth. Therefore, cleaning them would detract from the sound. Other drummers disagree and think that any loss in warmth is too minimal to even notice. We recommend trying both ways to make a decision for yourself. Cleaning the cymbal won’t ruin it and if you didn’t like the sound of the clean cymbal, there’s always time for dirt to build back up. One thing to keep in mind is that shiny, clean cymbals look awesome on stage. 

What is the best way to start learning an instrument? 

Everyone will learn differently, but at Drums To Trumpets we believe that it’s never too late to start learning a new instrument. Whether you are 15 or 55, you are capable of learning an instrument that interests you. First, we recommend finding an instrument that truly interests you. Learning a new skill, regardless of what it is, requires a lot of motivation and patience. After finding your instrument, it’s time to find a teacher. It’s definitely possible to teach yourself how to play an instrument, but if you think you don’t have the motivation and organization to do this, we suggest finding a good teacher. If you’re an adult, find a teacher that has experience teaching adult learners and can work with your schedule. Make sure you set reasonable goals for yourself while you are first starting out, don’t expect to be making money for playing after week one. After you’ve created a schedule for yourself and found a program or teacher that you like, have fun! Picking up an instrument should be something that brings you joy and peace from your hectic day. We’re excited that you are beginning your musical journey, contact us if you have questions about which instruments and equipment might be right for you.
