I bought some of this product for other uses but am curious if anyone has tried it on the outside of a wooden piccolo/flute headjoint.
All I ever really do is keep the Yami 62 swabbed and then wiped in/out with water and wiped dry.
Same with the grenadilla fife.
Seems to work great on Ebony guitars/gunstocks and their metal.
Might be great for metal horns as the steady working cruise ship players advised that they would strip the keys and paste wax the bodies.
Thx

I usually use mineral oil in the bore and outside of the head joint on my blackwood flute. Not saying this wax isn't good for the wood but I read the flute forums on Chiff and Fipple and this stuff has never come up.

Renaissance Wax is often used on bare brass and lacquer saxophones, not sure how it would affect the wood. I think it's very slightly (VERY slightly) abrasive, to act as a mild cleaning agent. Personally I use Pledge on my saxophones, but I would use this too. I use standard bore oil for my clarinet...
