I've been using a Hodge silk swab for my tenor saxophone after each playing session. This swab is a largeish silk cloth attached to a long cord. The cord is dropped from the neck collar to the bow of the sax; when the sax is inverted, if lucky the cord will fall out of the bell where it may be pulled to cause the silk cloth to pass thru the sax body and out the bell. An advantage is that the swab can be used with the neck also.
The Hodge swab works well but threading the cord through the bell often causes embarrassing curses.
»»---> I'm asking for suggestions for a good swab that is easier and quicker to use.
A "good" swab would be one that (1) absorbs all moisture inside the sax; (2) doesn't need to remain inside the sax or the sax case after use; (3) leaves no residue inside the sax after using & withdrawal; and (4) can be stored in an external pouch of the saxophone case without damage. <--«« (My sax is a Selmer SA80 III that has a large flat zipper pouch on the top side of the case, probably meant for storing sheet music.)
