"The problem is standards"
Or the lack thereof? When researching different bore oils currently after talking with a chemist about this topic, it became pretty clear that one shouldn't use mineral based oils, yet there's even instrument makers recommending it, because there is about 0 empiric foundation for any use of bore oil. There are other examples for this.
Perhaps it was Moennig who established a tradition of resourcefulness that we in Germany don't always have, though the Zoom barrel is a great invention, we don't have some Ridenour making high quality ebonite clarinets, but people who firmly believe the German system to be superior in tone. Their idea of what a clarinet (and working on it) looks like is too definite for my taste. There'd have to be much more evidence for some methods, whether they're long established or not.
