The Hodge Long Silk Oboe Swab
The Hodge oboe swabs clean the entire instrument fully assembled. This long version is the length of the fully assembled instrument so one can pull the swab back and forth. They have a safety cord on the back end, so that if there were a knot in one and it got stuck, it could be pulled back out the way it went in. All oboe swabs now use a straight weight rather than a ball chain.
The Qualities of Silk
All Hodge silk swabs are made from 100% silk and come in performers black, royal blue, burgundy, forest green, and deep purple. 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.

A well made long silk oboe swab with a safety cord. The matching colored weight goes easily through my oboe. The swab works terrific on a completely assembled oboe every time!
This swab is terrific. It cleans out the oboe and dries quickly. It also washes well (hand wash) and dries quickly. It’s a must have.
I tried to find an Oboe swab locally that would dry my oboe with one swab rather than having to take it apart each time to no avail. Then my Oboe teacher told me about your company ... walla! Yippee!!! Thank you somuch.
