Clarinet swabs. You probably don’t think about yours very much. It probably has the logo of your clarinet on it (if you can still read it through the funk that’s accumulated on it). Maybe it’s time for something better.
We made this swab with Korean microfiber (no kidding—they manufacture the best microfiber in the world) with a fantastically soft, thick, absorbent, 9″ x 6″ (23cm x 15cm) cloth, ruggedly sewn to a thick, 3-foot (1m) lace tube, inside which is a 2″ (5cm) stainless steel weight.
You will love this swab. I swear.
