New Conditioning Technology for Brass and Wind Instruments
BRITETone’s specialized lubricant formula provides a micro-thin lubricant barrier that banishes noise, facilitates silky-smooth playing response, and conditions horns to resist pitting, corrosion, and oxidation. BRITETone gives brass and metal surfaces an attractive finish, but will not act as a polish or stripper that can damage fine finishes of brass instruments. Once applied, the formula will not migrate or build up, and is safe and gentle for fine wood and metal surfaces.
Added Protection Against Harmful Bacteria, Fungus, and Viruses
Varying climate and humidity conditions can reek havoc with sensitive band and orchestral instruments, leading to moisture and condensation that give rise to harmful bacteria, fungus, and viruses. Regular application of BRITETone® effectively eliminates the threat of harmful microbial buildup from both high and low pH contaminants including saliva, smoke, sweat, and the condensation that occurs when instruments are taken outside and back inside a playing venue. Read our in-depth report on BRITETone’s anti-microbial properties.

BRITETone® – Uniquely Effective, Environmentally responsible
BRITETone’s non-toxic formula is made expressly for use on all metal parts and surfaces of horns and other band & orchestra instruments. BRITETone’s micro films are less toxic than conventional mineral oils and other petroleum based oil lubricants and conditioners. And our dry-to-the-touch films do not migrate or transfer on contact unlike silicone and Teflon. The proprietary formulation is the culmination of years of research and development in flex-film technologies, and has been a cornerstone of private label products since 1986.
*Special note regarding use on brass and woodwinds.
The mouthpiece should first be cleaned and sterilized using conventional methods prior to applying BRITETone. Apply BRITETone® to mouthpiece receiver and shank as a post-cleaning preventative measure. Also apply internally to the throat and backbore to prevent buildup of hard scale deposits. Allow 15-20 seconds to dry thoroughly. Clean the mouthpiece rim off with medical grade denatured alcohol or preferred antiseptic after reinsertion. When applied to the mouthpiece some of the microfilm may be accidentally transferred to the mouth contact area during reassembly. We do not recommend leaving our microfilm on the mouth contact area of the mouthpiece although Sound Synergies micro films are inert and non-toxic when dry. They will not migrate or back-flush when dry. They can be totally removed with dish detergent and warm water (plain water or saliva will not remove BRITETone’s hydrophobic micro film).
