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

After decades, there definitely are considerable changes to the bore, in that int shrinks a bit. Of course, only in the range of 0.01-0.1mm, but still!
Now especially some of the smaller makers here in Germany pride themselves with using truly naturally dried wood that in some cases has aged for decades. L&K pre-bore their wood before storing it for a while... as do many others. That way, warping is supposedly reduced to a minimum.
S&S claims their boxwood clarinets warp way less, not only because of whatever kind of magic they apply to them, but also, because it was stored for ages.

So while I‘m glad to see so much thought put into making an instrument, at some point it becomes hocus-pocus. Almost 1000€ or so for a wood type that has been known to warp massively?
By the way, only high-end Buffets are made of „non baked“ wood. I know other instrument makers argue that artificially drying the wood has adverse effects. Buffet most certainly doesn’t „pre-bore“ as described above! My hypothesis remains that the seeming necessity to chose one from a dozen of R13 is mainly caused by varying wood quality...
But them, I wouldn’t assume other big makers do that, either...
