Okay, so mine is stored in it's case, inside a case cover, in
a closet where the temperature stays fairly moderate.
I play it maybe once a week.

How about this "electrically charged" thing Richard Bush mentioned
awhile back? Is my clarinet going to become a dirt magnet right
away, or would that depend on certain circumstances also?

Like if I comb my hair with it too often? ;-)

(Sorry Richard, I love ya but I couldn't help it.) But seriously,
how does this happen, and how long would it take? Or is it just
something that happens more on some horns than others,
depending on......?
