 Re: your personal bore-oil concoction?
Author: clarnibass

I've used mostly the Doctor's oil and Grenadoil (also from the doctor's), and recently organic almond oil because someone asked for that specifically (and even brought it).

I can't say I found a huge difference between any of them, but the almond oil was a bit harder to remove any excess.
I don't know exactly what's in the Doctor's oil but it has almond oil in it (you can smell it) and at least another type of nut oil. It also has stronger antioxidants than regular oil which is one of the main advantages.

Grenadoil is supposedly a synthetic copy of the exact oil in grenadilla wood. I use it occasionally but only if someone is interested because it is much more expensive.

Trying these oils on probably hundreds of clarinets (and some other oils before I started using the Doctor's), I can't say there is a noticeable difference. I guess to find any difference you'd have to take many pieces of wood, enough to cover for them before different, then do research for some years, using different oils, accurately measure, while they remain in the same conditions, and maybe cut and examine them.
