I have a wooden mouthpiece I am quite fond of, but have a question about maintaining it. I know it is supposed to be kept dry, and I take care to keep the table and rails dry, but it dries on its own very quickly, which tells me it might need to be oiled. For example, if I play the piece on one song, and flute on the next, by the time I return to the mouthpiece it is dry. My question concerns oiling the piece. How much oil, and doesn't the oil keep it wet? Should I lightly oil it, and then wipe off the moisture? Any tips much appreciated. Thanks.
