The first decent baritone swab we've come across.

The idea is that is bends along with the saxophone, around the circular part of the body after each playing session. This swab is designed to keep this area clean and to keep gunk from building up. It is a foam covered flexible snake, 24 inches long and the diameter of the bore of the circular section of the saxophone, with a silk covering which quickly absorbs the water that has accumulated. This swab is pushed into the top of the saxophone and around the loop and then pulled back out removing the moisture. The neck is cleaned similarly.

Colour may vary.

"Baritone Sax Silk Swab"
Have had one of these silk swabs for a year or two, and it started off really good, and was so easy to use, but quite soon the springy spiral curtain wire inside the foam began to poke out at the ends and to scratch its way down inside the horn, also jamming into one or more tone holes and pads en-route, so that the swab would only go a short way round the bend before jamming immovably, leaving about two thirds hanging out. Have stitched the curtain wire back inside the silk several times, but the repair doesnt last long as the curtain wire ends are so sharp. I think a possible solution might be for the manufacturers to insert a small round-ended plastic cap or stop into each end of the curtain wire before the foam and silk are added, so that the curtain wire within wont quickly tear through the delicate silk. To be fair, Ive had mine a while, and I see from your illustration that they now seem to have squared-off ends -maybe to solve this problem?- but Id be interested to know if the steel curtain wire ends are still left unprotected, before risking buying a new one. My bari is a Selmer with top F#, so does have the extra and possibly more vulnerable top tone holes/mechanism. Would be pleased to have your comments.
