2017 Indie Music Channel Artist of the Year
“I’ve been using Sound Synergies BRITETone® to clean and precondition my horn. I’m blown away by the difference it’s made in key action and slide movement. It’s as if I play easier and the valves are effortless. I love it and strongly encourage any musician to give this stuff a try.”
