Anyone know if you can still buy direct? Mr. Henderson's websites, both doctorsprod.com & chedevillemp.com, are down. Hopefully, he'll answer directly. Thank you.

http://doctorsprod.com/cbuy/ is working for me. Might just be a temporary glitch. Ordered from him last month.

Thanks, it just worked for me too. I had tried several times over several days and gotten an error message every time saying the website was down.

Now I just wish he'd make a bore oiling rig for a bass clarinet!!!

For bore oiling my bass clarinet I have a one inch diameter paint roller attached to a .22 caliber rifle cleaning rod. Works for drying the bore as well.

I like the idea of the oil being organic, if it is true, however I haven't tested his oils out.

The true meaning of organic is totally pesticide free and NO chemicals are used to extract the oils. Often harmful chemicals are used to extract oils from wood and fruits such as olive oil. Some oils are heated to 450 to 500 degree to extract all of the oil, then perfume is added to kill the burnt smell. True organic oils are PRESSED out without any chemicals and this is very expensive. You can often tell if oil has been treated just by the smell. It should not have a perfumed smell to it and the oil shouldn't look brownish or have a darkening look to it. It should look as close to clear as possible. This is always your best types of pure oils. I'm sure people may disagree, but do your research before you disagree. If you do your hours and hours of research and disagree it's good to have other opinions. I encouraged other opinions.

But be careful. It's pretty much like taking burnt oil and putting it inside the bore of your clarinet. Even if it says organic, be careful. It surely can't be good for a horn. Ask questions.

This would be a very good question to ask him. How is the oil extracted and is the oil totally organic? If not look around for other oils which are pure, or wear gloves at all times.
