Hodge Silk Swabs are premium swabs made from 100 percent silk for removing moisture from woodwind instruments after each use. Hodge uses silk because it is absorbent, has no lint and is compressible. The swabs are large enough to wick the moisture out of the larger part of the bore, but compressible enough to pull through the neck. They do not leave lint in the keys. They are not stored inside the instrument so the moisture does not remain. Hodge swabs are regularly recommended by repairmen for optimum care of your instrument. The bassoon swab can clean both the boot joint and the wing joint. Only one swab is needed to go through the entire body of the instrument.
- Silk swabs are made from 100% China silk, a very absorbent, lint free material - better than cotton or chamois. Silk is very compressible, making it possible to pull through instruments with variations in bore size.
