If you like details and history, read on…
We’ve been looking for a better way to clean the oil and grime from valve casings for years… and we’ve finally found it, tested it for 2 years, and can now offer it for sale to our customers. We just love this thing. We don’t care that it was originally intended as a flute pad saver!
We bought our first “flute swab” over 2 years ago and were very pleased that it quickly and easily cleaned out the valve casings without leaving any residue, fuzz or scratches behind. After about a month’s use on everything we used and sold, we threw it in the washer (and the dryer) with a load of towels. It came out clean and intact. We did it two more times just to make sure it could handle the washing without coming apart. We were again very pleased with the results and knew we most likely had the product we were looking for.
CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS. The picture of the swab looking very dark and dirty is what it looked like after using that same original swab for 2 years on everything that went out of our store. That includes about 130 new CarolBrass instruments prepared, some used horns and of course whatever we’ve played ourselves. This is much more use than any individual would subject this tool to. The picture following showing the swab not nearly as dirty is what it looks like after its 4th washing (after the 2 years of use). We are still using this same tool, but just decided to finally turn it around and use it upside down for maybe the next year to even out what little wear that does occur.
Finally there is a quick and easy method of cleaning the valve casings, with no worry about scratching the casings with a cleaning rod when the rag gets unwound. Only caution is on most flugelhorns one must hold the swab in such a manner that it won’t protrude far enough through the bottom of the casing so as to hit the lower section of the bell tubing. (Like “choking a baseball bat)
