New Synthetic Formula:
Yamaha Superior Valve Oil is based on a newly developed synthetic formula. This formula is more consistent than mineral based oils and provides superior performance in all playing environments.
The advanced formula is produced using a consistent molecule size. Standard valve oils contain mineral oil which is made up of molecules varying in size. The varied molecule make-up of mineral oil allows the oil to evaporate at an uneven rate, leaving high viscosity particles behind. The even molecules found in the new Yamaha Superior Valve Oil synthetic formula allow the oil to evaporate smoothly, guaranteeing a longer life and extremely responsive action.

My son uses the REGULAR type on a new student trumpet and the LIGHT type on his second-hand Strad. He cannot tell much difference between the two types, but they both work very well.
