Proper maintenance of your premium instrument is a must! With wood instruments such as clarinets, oboes & piccolos, having the right tools to oil the bore of your instrument is crucial in preventing cracks and serious damage to the precious bore of your instrument! Along with a premium oil (such as our Kessler Natural Almond Oil), you need a proper applicator to avoid destroying the pads of your instrument from over-oiling. For this, repairs shops and artists trust a simple item: the turkey feather. Most use a simple white turkey feather to ensure an even and delicate application of oil to their premium instrument. However, have you ever seen a white turkey?? For the most discerning players, only an all natural approach to maintaining their instrument will do. So instead, they opt for an all natural turkey feather.
Every musician loves his instrument. There can be nothing more traumatizing for a musician than damaging his precious instrument.
And, if you play the violin and you are going somewhere that requires you to travel by air, it’s only normal that you want to continue creating music with your instrument.
However, a violin is an extremely delicate “music-making-machine” (just as how all the other stringed instruments are).
And, it is a grave risk that you are taking if you are planning to check it in with the very cold environment at the cargo section of the plane.
