Just got a Selmer USA Signet 100 Clarinet for cheap. I want to disassemble it and give it a good cleaning, oiling, new pads and corks etc. May keep it to play or practice repairs on as a hobby.
Took some lessons on clarinet in college and had a wooden Selmer Paris made Clarinet then but pawned it for money. Was a broke college student then and wasn’t going to pawn my Conn 10M Sax for anything.
I searched the web and YouTube and found a plethora of deep cleaning plastic clarinets, mouthpieces, cases, routine maintenance for (oiling the inside etc) wooden clarinets and some conflicting information on what is safe to use on them.
So what are some best practices or safe options when it comes to cleaning wooden clarinets?
