 Ishimori WoodStone Kodama ii ligature maintenance
Author: Naum 
Date:   2018-01-17 22:14

I have recently purchased one of my grail accesories, the woodstone kodama 2 by a Japanese company named Ishimori

It is a leather ligature with a Granadilla plate fixed where the reed is held.

It is quite a pricey ligature and I try to and want to maintain it properly so that it will serve it's purpose for years to come.

I try to fasten the ligature by screwing very gently, not too tight, just tight enough to hold the reed properly.

My concern is the Granadilla plate.
It's basically a wood and it must be sensitive to temperature and humidity.
I am worried that the plate will crack because of poor maintenance.

I don't oil my clarinet as I don't want the oil to stick on pads.
But for this case, is oiling a good idea? Or is there any better idea?

Have a nice day cla fam :)
