 Re: Any ideas for bringing a "blown out" instrument back to life?

Dear Kalashni, There's a wealth of food for thought in your comments! Ultimately, we all seem to pretty much agree that condensation/humidity is responsible for the wear and tear. Other cuilprits could be the pressure waves, swabbing of the bore, vibrations; but I should think these are pretty minor factors compared with water. I've known many French bassoonists who played Buffet French bassoons and switched over to German bassoons. Though French bassoons are made of much heavier rosewood and German bassoons are made of light maple, the French bassoons "blow out" whereas the Germans don't simply because the joint that gets the most rainfall is lined on the latter. That's why there are so many bassoonists around playing almost 100 year-old Heckels! So the solution: ebonite lining. I work for a small instrument-maker and we're not equipped to do this.
