Reduces key noise
Increases mechanical precision
Allows for freer vibration of the wood
Ignores weather and humidity changes
Eliminates binding keys
Greatly reduces maintenance costs
Wood expands during humid periods and contracts during dry ones. These conditions can become a problem for your instrument if you live in an area
with significant seasonal weather changes, if you fly often, or if
you travel between several different climate zones each year.
With the LP Ball Bearing System, we will modify the mechanism in such a way that it allows the wood to expand or contract without keys becoming stuck or loose. This mechanism allows the wood to vibrate freely and smoothly. The result is less stress on the wood, which in turn, reduces the risk for cracks.
The LP Ball Bearing System can also be added to used instruments, and is highly recommended for bass clarinets.
