I have just been reading about the care of a new wooden clarinet and there seems to be a lot of conflicting information out there. With my plastic clarinet I swab it thoroughly after each session of playing and use cig papers to dry moisture from under the pads.
The instrument is kept in the same room as the new Sauter piano where hudmidity is kept at 40 to 50 and temperature between 16 and 18.
What oiling should be done with a new wooden instrument and how often. Also I gather that new wooden ones need to be played very little to start with to break them in so to speak. Can anyone advise on all this?
