How do you repair a trigger trombone?

My trombone valves keep getting stuck and need to be repaired prior to a concert.

You first need to make sure that your strings on your trigger are still tied correctly and that they are not becoming frayed. If your strings are in tact, a quick fix is to use some trumpet valve oil to loosen it up. Then, have it looked at post-concert.

Valves can stick because they're dirty, or because the brand of valve oil being used does not work well with that brand of instrument. The valves can be cleaned in warm soapy water. Trying different brand of valve oil can also reduce sticking.

Why not speak to someone at your local music store? if they don't know how to fix it themselves, they should at least know someone in the area who can do it for you. I wouldn't try to fix it yourself if you need it for a concert.
