Bore waxing is a great way to help control water build up inside wood instruments. We have developed a combination specific oil and wax that work really well together. The end result is a very thin layer of water repellent material that sends the musician's condensation sliding out the bell. Pictured here is a close up of the bore which shows light reflected off the waxed surface.
The next picture shows a clrinet bore that has been waxed here in our shop. As you can see, after playing for a while, the condensation bubbles up as opposed to being absorbed in the wood or even worse, under a pad. In a vertical position, the water quickly rides out the bell.
