It's a tethered piece of cotton for a high price. There are much better alternatives for a lower price. When these come with a clarinet in the case, yes, I don't mind my students using them. It has a nice weight in the string and it's washable (it won't shrink or run). There is one drawback to the white cloth. If you actually use the thing, the brown gunk that might come out of your (absent-minded) students' instruments might be rather repulsing. This is great if you want to see that to remind you to wash the thing, but I find it a little disgusting.
Got this with an E11 and the big problem is that the exposed threads get stuck in the top half of the instrument and you basically have to pull hard enough to tear the thread to get it out. I still use it, but I always have to fold it so the threads are on the inside before I run it through the instrument. If you are buying a new one, I would recommend not going with this one.
The only swab on the market that is both bulky and absorbent enough to dry out your bore.
Tip: drop it into the bell (clarinet upside down) to avoid it getting stuck in upper segment.
I got this swab with my Buffet E13 clarinet about 2 years ago. For a while, it was the best swab i had ever used; you would simply run it through the instrument and all the moisture would get sucked up. But a few months after i started using it, problems emerged. the biggest being that it would get stuck in the instrument. The line of fabric that runs down the middle gets stuck in the register hole of the instrument, and i had to get a repair man to remove it from my instrument. I developed a technique of rolling it up into a cylinder shape to run it through, which usually solved the problem. After about a year, the swab began to smell like old cheese, so i bought myself a Jeanne silk swab, which i continue to use this day. It's very good at first, but long term, i wouldn't recommend it if you need to swab your wooden instrument.
