Details: Hodge Silk Swabs are premium swabs made from pure 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 silk bass clarinet swabs are made with a large plastic coated weight allowing the swab to drop through the instrument without hanging up in the large key holes. It is capable of cleaning the entire instrument. Because of the bass clarinet's length, the swab is designed to clean the neck separately.
