A professional bassoonist with whom I am acquainted mentioned to me that woodwind instruments are unlike stringed instruments such as violins and cellos in that they do not improve with age and playing. "A pre-war Heckel is unlikely to have as good a sound as a more modern Heckel" she said. He says older woodwind instruments become 'blown-out'. Is she right? Any thoughts?

I disagree,many things need to be done on a new instrument for tuning. Older instruments my just need pads changed or other small ajustments.
