A reminder for fellow instrumentalists, it’s getting to be that dry time of year.

In the late 1960s, when I was playing an oboe from the 1940s, I took it to music camp, where it was exposed to cold dry nights and developed a crack. I had the cracked pinned expertly, after which the oboe actually played more freely and with better tone than before the crack. But that, I think, is very unusual.

Every quality instrument I’ve been in contact with was a unique individual. Your observation doesn’t surprise me.
