How to avoid Germs on your Musical Instrument

Before you purchase that used musical instrument be sure to give some thought about how that instrument has been taken care of—or not.  Not too long ago a sampling of wind instruments (woodwinds and brass) that had been played were subjected to lab testing from about 100 swabs taken from them.   Over 400 different bacteria, more than 50 types of mold and 19 types of yeast were detected.  Contamination was found in instruments played that week and instruments that had not been played for long periods of time.  Obviously, regular care and cleaning is important.   It’s also why beginning band instruments offered by reputable music outlets on musical instrument rentals are a good choice: because they offer clean instruments to begin with and most provide ongoing care and maintenance services.
