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

Dear John (Peacock), I found your idea of an instrument being "blown in" rather than "blown out" rather fascinating. The lathes they use in big companies like Buffet, Selmer, Yamaha, etc. have become very precise, but ideally, you would use fractions of a millimetre variations in order to adjust to the wood that you're using. One size doesn't fit all. This is what luthiers do; adjust the making of their string instruments to the wood they're using and never doing quite the same thing twice.
What I subjectively mean by "blown out" is what I would compare to a worn-out reed: the instruments seems to lose its core, seems to vibrate less and its sound becomes brighter. This might not just stem from changes in dimensions of the bore, but rather to some invisible damage done to the woods fibers. At any rate, if you ever want to give up science or clarinet playing, you could become a first-class lawyer. You have an excellent eye for circumstantial evidence!
