Best Uses

    Comments about GEM Swabs Silk Saxophone Swabs:

    Unlike the clarinet swab, the sax swab has a bristle
    brush under the silk fabric intended to widen the coverage of the swab. Unfortunately, the brush flattens after a few weeks and doesn't spread out the fabric as intended. Nevertheless, this is the best swab I've tried.

    Works great, but doesn't last long

    Comments about GEM Swabs Silk Saxophone Swabs:

    This would get a 5 star rating if it would just hold up better. It does a really great job of absorbing moisture and easily slides through the horn. Unfortunately, I have to buy a new one every few weeks. The cord is not secured tightly to the swab, so eventually it just pulls out. I can usually make a new hole in the swab and make it last for another week or two. If you like them, buy in bulk.

    great swab, not extremely durable

    Comments about GEM Swabs Silk Saxophone Swabs:

    These swabs are great, nothing absorbs moisture better. They can be used for the body as well as the neck. However, they aren't very durable, and sometimes the brush pulls through the silk. I also find that they can often get stuck on the D-G# octave vent just below the neck tenon, so you just have to be careful not to try to yank them through the saxophone. Otherwise, these swabs are the way to go.
