The Best Damn Trumpet Lead Pipe Swab Period!


*27" cord. You can pull the swab through both the tuning slide and lead pipe with the tuning slide is still inserted in the lead pipe - won’t wipe off any slide lube.

*The cord is sewn onto the swab material - will last longer than swabs with cords tied or clamped on.

*Weights are inside the cord - won’t scratch the inside of tubing or come loose from the cord. Also provides a bit of “cushioning,” should the weights bump against your horn.

*Separated weights: Allows easier swabbing through slide curves.

*Contains enough weight to negotiate through multiple curves (i.e., cornets). You might have to shake your horn to get the cord through all the tubing.

*We won’t say the swab material will never fray or pull apart from the cord, but this design ensures it will last longer than other currently available trumpet lead pipe swabs.

*Assembled and stored in completely smoke-free environments.

*No musicians were harmed during the development or manufacture of this swab, which is a pretty amazing accomplishment considering that it was 2 guys with scissors and a lot of sewing needles.

*Used in almost every pit on Broadway; Anne King (Rod Stewart, American Idol); Craig Taylor (Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Diana Krall, Kennedy Center, Ford Theatre, etc.), Walt Johnson (Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Frank Sinatra Jr., etc.), Bobby Burns (EWF); Steve Reid (Prince, Duke Ellington, KC & the Sunshine Band, Brian Setzer); John Reid (KC & the Sunshine Band); Dave Trigg (American Idol, Natalie Cole, Liza Minnelli); Kenny Rampton (Jazz at Lincoln Center, Sesame Street, Mingus bands, Broadway, etc.); Tony Scodwell (Doc Severinsen Big Band, Harry James, Vegas shows); Roger Ingram (Harry Connick, Maynard); Pete Olstad (Maynard, Tom Jones); Jay Sollenberger (Chase, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman); Michael Buble trumpet section; Jay Saunders (Stan Kenton, Director of the UNT 2 O'Clock Band); Brian Setzer Orchestra trumpet section; showrooms in Atlantic City, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, Las Vegas; recording studios in LA, NYC, Chicago; assorted symphony and opera orchestras...
