I find if I leave my clarinets together too many days, the tendon
corks don't have time to recover and end up over compressed, even
if playing it lots of hours, leaving the joints a little loose.
Over Christmas I experienced this, leaving it together allot,
and just putting it away, overnight improved the tightness of the fit.

It has been suggested to me that if tendons became too loose,
clear nail polish can be applied to the inner rim of the tendon
to improve the cork fit. New cork may ideal, but does anyone
take offense at such application of clear nail polish??
