Whilst we're on the topic of oiling I have a question. I have a pair of
6-keyed boxwood clarinets made in 1994 which I used to oil about every four
months. Since moving to England six months ago, from the east coast of
Australia, I have oiled them once. Last November I noticed a 17mm crack in
the top joint of the Bb which was probably the instrument's reaction to my
practising it in cold rooms. At least now I am careful to leave the
instrument to adjust to the room's temperature before I start. How often do
you seasoned 'northern hemisphere dwellers' oil your clarinets? What about
boxwood instruments?

Thanks and best wishes,
Ingrid Elizabeth
