Important Tips

  • NEVER get the pads of the instrument wet or moist.

  • Make sure to put together the joints so that you don't dig into the tenon corks.

  • Don't soak your mouthpiece in water that is too hot, or to where the cork is submerged.

  • If you have a wooden instrument and have questions about key or bore oil, talk to Mrs. Baxter or Miss Coleman.
