Hi James

Depending on the size that you have to reduce will dictate how much wax you will need. No worries if you end up with too much, just save it for next time. Warm the wax up either on a warm radiator(don't let it melt) or squeeze it in your hands until it softens. Roll it out on a hard surface using the palm of your hand into a sausage until it is long enough to fit around the top on the mouthpiece and looks thick enough to reduce the opening to the size you want. Once its on the top of the opening push the ends together (you can use your fingers to seal the join) and press it down gently. Next push the wax down the inside of the instrument to make a good seal, do this all the way round. Do a similar thing on the outside but only just enough to seal the wax against the outside of the didge. I usually finish this bit off with a warm knife to get a nice finish but that is not essential. Once the wax is on the instrument you can mould it more accurately to get the right size and make it more or less level across the top which wll give a good seal for your lips.

Good luck

Paul
