I heard from my teacher ( Dr. John Anderson, Univerity of MN) that one should not oil the bore more than once a year. The wood should stay moisturized enough if stored in proper climate and humid control and with a dampit or two in the case.( Not nesessary during summer/humid seasons.) p.s-in case you don't know, a dampit is a long, skinny, pencil-shaped sponge that releases moisture to your clariet.

You can read in great detail about this matter if you search in Klarinet archive.Followings are discussed.
1)Is it necessary to apply bore oil or not?
2)Mineral oil or natural oil.
3)How often if apply.
4)Add vitamin oil to natural oil to avoid it corrupt.
etc.

I personally don't like the dampits. I simply use a cigar humidifier that i can get at tobacco stores for $1.50.

Gotta love Daniel's posting above. I still am amazed at how ingenious the real pros and determined amateurs are when it comes to clarinet supplies and tricks. I have personally discovered some of the most amazing little and cheap tricks that actually work, like Daniel's.

Too bad there isn't a "cheap tricks" area of this BBS where folks can scan and find the best solutions to little problems on the cheap. Remember, the expensive stuff isn't necessarily the best solution, it's just expensive.
