Proper use of Cecilio care kit and consistent maintenance of instrument will help ensure that you will enjoy your saxophone for many years to come.
Mouthpiece brush – After each use, rub the outside of the mouthpiece with a soft cloth then scrub the inside of your mouthpiece with the mouthpiece brush. You can use lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
Neck Snake – Use once a week to remove particles and moisture from the neck of your saxophone. Run the brush end through the neck to remove particles. Use the cotton swab end to remove any residue and/or moisture.
Polishing Cloth – After each use, rub on outside of your instrument to remove particles and fingerprints. Rub briskly to return finish to its fine luster.
Key brush – Use the soft end of the key brush once a week to remove dust or lint that accumulates around post, springs and under key rods. Use the pipe cleaner end on hard to reach areas.
Cork Grease – Apply small amounts on neck cork to maintain the quality of the cork and to ease mouthpiece assembly. Remember to always remove your mouthpiece when not in use.
