Musicare Inc., was first to introduce band instrument ultrasonic cleaning to the Ottawa area.
Our tank is designed to clean everything from the smallest piccolo to the largest tuba. We use this cleaning process to clean instrument bodies, valves, slides, necks, keys and mouthpieces.
Ultrasonic cleaning removes grease, slime, buffing compound, saliva, acids and other harmful agents. Aside from all the important hygienic properties ultrasonic cleaning offers, Musicare data shows that wind instruments regularly cleaned in our ultrasonic tank perform better and last longer.
For brasswinds we recommend ultrasonic cleaning once a year as the cleaning process will help keep the mouthpipe or leadpipe free of “red rot” caused by saliva.
