a. Removing Water via the Pitch Pipe
Press down the piston and pull out the pitch pipe to get rid of the water. The water within the euphonium
body can be drained out from the drainage hole. Though made of brass or silver, the pitch pipe is greatly
corrosion resistant. However, when containing water for a long time, it will also suffer from corrosion.
In order to prevent such a problem, the piston should be given some valve oil and pressed several times
for smooth operation.
b. Application of Valve oil
Take off the screw cap above the piston cylinder and then pull half of the piston slowly and vertically. The
piston is provided with one or two drops of valve oil and pressed several times to make the oil fully coated
on the piston. If not oiled regularly, the piston may work inflexibly. Therefore, it should be maintained carefully.
c. Smudge Cleaning
The surface of the euphonium should be softly wiped with the cleaning cloth, once per week. When the pitch
pipe is being pulled out, the piston should be pressed down. The gauze is wound around the cleaning rod,
with the metal part not being exposed. The smudge on the middle tube and inner side of the outer pipe should
be cleaned away.
The tuning slide with the ring, the first and the second one, should be supplied with the tuning slide oil. The main and the second tuning slide as well as the one without the ring are coated with a little tuning slide oil. Afterwards, these tuning slides are pulled several times to make the oil evenly coated.
d. Cleaning of Mouthpiece and Inner Part of the Euphonium Body
The brass soap is poured into the warm water with the temperature being from 30°C to 40 °C. The proportion of the brass soap to the water is 1:15. The cleaner brush is employed to dip the brass soap to clean the mouthpiece. Such brass soap can also be used to clean the inner part of the body. The flexible cleaner is adopted. Then, the inner part of the body is rinsed with water.
e. Water Drainage Hole Cleaning
The water drainage hole should be cleaned with the tone hole cleaning rod once a month.
f. Piston Cylinder Cleaning
The gauze is wrapped around the cleaning rod with the metal part unexposed to remove the smudge on the inner side of the piston cylinder. The gauze is used to clean the smudge on the piston. Then, the piston is plugged into the piston cylinder and provided with some tuning slide oil for lubrication.
g. Cleaning of Other Parts
The cleaning gauze is made into the strip and then used to clean the subtle parts.
