Reviews around product (5.00 of 5)

  • Excellent product; after every practice I clean my clarinet with this through the mouthpiece, barrel, upper and lower joints
  • As I know silk absorb water pretty well, but this product is not cleaning inside of my clarinet that well

Reviews around job (5.00 of 5)

  • The silk does a fine job of absorbing moisture and gently polishing the bore
  • She loves it, and, being that it is silk, it does a much better job
  • These do a decent job of cleaning my daughters' clarinets, but the cloth is thin (it is silk, after all), and perhaps there needs to be a bit more of it to better reach the edges of the barrel
  • It is quite absorbent and seems to do a better job than my cotton swab
  • The shape of the swab itself does a good job of swabbing and cleaning

Reviews around tool (5.00 of 5)

  • I occasionally wash the swab with dish-washing soap and then hang it up to dry--on the theory that a cleaning tool should itself be clean.
  • Didn't know silk was the preferred cleaning tool for resin, wood, brass, or metal instruments

Reviews around silk swab (4.16 of 5)

  • After 8 months this silk swab is still intact and cleans my son's clarinet perfectly
  • I've tried cotton broadcloth, cotton felt, and now this silk swab - and I love this Hodge silk swab.
  • The weight and cord are the right length and heft for dropping down the clarinet, and the material doesn't catch or snag as it pulls through
  • Firstly I'd say that this silk swab from Hodge is nice and I don't mind using it
  • This silk swab worked wonderfully straight out of the package

Reviews around weight (3.53 of 5)

  • I could be wrong about this, but, in any case, the lighter, gentler weight of a shoe string end is enough to pull the string through the shaft
  • Anyway, great swab, the weight is perfect, and has a pretty minimalistic design which I like.
  • I cut off the weight at the end of the cord and replaced it with part of a shoe string because I'm afraid that a heavy weight continually knocking against the instrument might eventually slightly erode it
  • There is a good weight at the bottom of the string that works well.
  • The weight on the end of those ended up coming lose and being lost

  • The weight and cord are the right length and heft for dropping down the clarinet, and the material doesn't catch or snag as it pulls through
  • The family clarinet player loves this
  • As advertised... my 11 year old clarinet player says it works very well!
