Although you would not change the oil every 3,000 miles, instruments are like cars where they require some routine maintenance to keep them in performance ready shape and sounding their best. In our teaching studios we often have drums, guitars, basses, amps, and keyboards that come in with minor problems that could have been prevented with some minor maintenance.
