Our favorite saxophone swab for soprano saxophone is actually a clarinet swab! The plastic-coated weight is small enough to pull all the way through a fully assembled saxophone, so there is no need to remove the neck or carry a separate swab for the neck. This is a great convenience. Made with pure silk it is also super absorbent and strong.
The Qualities Of Silk
All Hodge silk swabs are made from 100% silk and very absorbent, soaking up water in instruments better than any other natural material on the market, 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.
