If cleaned often, a simple soap and water cleaning should be enough to maintain a properly working
rotor (we recommend twice a year). Over time, a rotor will develop build up which will result in poor
action. If your rotor has not been cleaned recently, first take your instrument to a certified repair
technician to have the instrument chemically cleaned. After the chemical clean, it will be easy to
maintain a clean rotor with general soap cleaning.
1. Clean the bell sections, rotor casing and tuning slides with warm soapy water and a nylon
2. Rinse thoroughly with clean warm water.
3. Dry parts with a lint free towel and set aside to dry completely before reassembling.
