Subj: Re: [kl] Cracking clarinets

I have a good friend who has been on the road for a while with a well known
Broadway show. Because of the VERY cold air conditioning and the fact that
he is playing Eb, Bb and bass so he is forced to pick up cold horns, he has
had a number of problems with cracking.
