Trumpet Lead Pipe Swab


This lead pipe swab from Yamaha is so quick, easy and effective that you’ll actually use it.

A lightweight, absorbent and quick-drying microfiber cloth is firmly attached to a stiff but flexible nylon cord. Unlike swabs that rely on a weight to pull the string through the slide, the nylon cord has enough rigidity that it is easy to simply feed it through both lead pipe and tuning slide. The cloth is fluffy but compressible; it contacts all the inner surface of the tube, regardless of bore size.

A few seconds a day will keep the critical front end of the horn spotless and reduce buildup throughout the instrument.
