...Micro-bearings? Nah...just shove a bit of brass tube on a spring down the ol' barrel.
Not quite. There are Minibal bearings. They are not commonly used and are not exactely cheap.

Minibal Bearings

The manufacturer of the bearings is just around the corner where I live as well as the woodwindshop (Dörfler Klarinetten) from which the picture below is taken. Minibal bearings on their high end clarinets.

Yep, I've seen the Miniballs (fitted to a Martin, no less). It's a good idea, but it's essentially old technology adapted to fit a horn.
