If the manufacturer says so, do it (internally only). If for no other
reason than to make sure they don't hassle you about voiding the warrantee
if it cracks. After the first year as the instrument breaks in, less
oiling should be required. Just don't use too much and/or get it on the pads.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
