The silk trumpet swabs are intended to be used after each playing session to clean out the lead pipe and tuning slide so no build-up occurs. The ball chain weight slips around the curves of the french horn with ease. This swab fits all horns with a pre-valve main tuning slide.
All Hodge silk swabs are made from 100% silk and are available in performers black, royal blue, burgundy, forest green and deep purple. Silk is very absorbent, soaking up water in instruments better than any other natural material including both cotton and chamois. Most uniquely silk is also very compressible, making it possible to pull through instruments with large variations in bore size. In addition, silk is lint free.
All new instruments come with a minimum 24 month warranty on repairs and we will take care of all servicing and cleaning within the first 12 months upon request. All second hand instruments come with a 6 month guarantee from the date of purchase.
