 My First Overhaul
Author: Kathy 
Date:   1999-07-29 05:29

I like small tedious projects with lots of time and money involved. So, I bought a used beat-up, moldy set of clarinets. Now, I've been playing since I was 9 so, I figured I knew my instrument pretty well. Nope.

Where would I find a book or instructions on how to dismantle, clean, polish and assemble a nice old wood clarinet? I found a place that sells pads and the blue spring wire- but it's just a small local guitar shop. I'll need cork(and lots of it- I'm afraid) and whole ball of wax.

I have a couple woods and two (new for me) metal clarinets. All in need of serious tender loving care. Any assistance you guys could give would be appreciated.....

Thank you
