I'm not properly trained, but I pull off the neck of my contra-alto and pour it every half hour or so. That way, I avoid condensation getting down into the whole great big piece of plumbing. The shape of the neck traps most of the liquid before it gets into the bore, as long as I don't let a lot of fluid accumulate. Dumping the neck only takes a few seconds. Swabbing the whole instrument is much more of a chore, especially when Jane Feline provides intensive supervision, but this way I only have to do it once, when I'm ready to put the clarinet away.

To hear the audio, click on the "Scorch Plug-In" box above the score.
