Hodge 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.

The Qualities of Silk
All Hodge silk swabs are made from 100% silk. Silk is 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.
*Hodge Swabs come in performers black, royal blue, burgundy, forest green, and deep purple and are sold as random; if you have a colour preference please let us know in you cart order notes and we'll do our best to accommodate.
