terrier how to spruce up a recorder (33) RE: how to spruce up a recorder 25 Jun 11


Almond oil should be OK for wooden flutes, but every time I buy some, 'erself uses it for cooking so I use olive oil, which I've used for many years with no problems. I'd be wary about taking too much wood off the outside of a recorder to remove dents, recorder tuning is a bit precarious at the best of times and altering the depth of the finger holes could drastically affect the pitch of that particular note. Tuning a recorder is a dark art with little room for error.
