Top quality outfit for maintaining good playing condition.

The Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit includes impregnated polishing mitt, flute body handkerchief swab, headjoint swab, 3 flute swab cloths, a small duster brush, and key and hinge oiler.

The handkerchief swab should be used following each session of play or practice of the flute. The weighted end should be dropped through the body and foot joint with the headjoint removed. 2 or 3 pulls through the instrument will soak up moisture and prevent both sticking pads and odors.

The unique headjoint swab fits into the end of your cleaning rod. The 2 flaps should be folded together and inserted in the slot in the rod. The hooded portion should be folded back over the rod and the rod inserted into the open end of the headjoint until it is just touching the closed end (tuning cork assembly) of the headjoint. 2 or 3 passes in and out will clear condensation build-up.

The double end duster brush is used to clean the area where the moving parts of your flute come together. You will see that dust, lint, moisture, and other materials seem to gather at these points. Brushes should always be used dry. No water or oil should be used on the brush.

The key and hinge oiler is a remarkable oiling device, allowing you to place a small drop of highly refined oil on the hinge tubing next to the posts. Oil should not be added if hinges and screws are not thoroughly cleaned. Extreme care should be taken to never let any oil touch the pads of the flute.

Your polishing mitt is already treated with a special cleaner and polish for the finish of your instrument. Do not use additional commercial silver polish to clean or shine your flute. The mitt is lined to help prevent both the cleaner and moisture from contacting your hand.

great product

By Stacie Cormier

Comments about Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit:

Purchased for a beginner flute player age 11 beginning band. She was so excited to use this product. She easily can use everything. We didn't have trouble with the head joint swab. Reading other reviews they spoke of it. We were careful and gentle while doing this. We have used the products everyday for the past 2 weeks. The kit contains everything you would need to maintenance your flute. Looking at others they didn't contain all the products.

overall, pretty good

Comments about Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit:

Most of the components of this kit were excellent, I especially liked the polishing mitt and weighted cleaning cloth as they were really effective keeping my flute clean and moisture free. The headjoint swab however, came off my cleaning rod and got stuck in the headjoint. It took a considerable amount of effort to get it out!

this product is great.

By Julie-hz274

Comments about Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit:

The polishing mitt works well, it keeps my flute shiny and finger print free and CLEAN. The headjoint swap did not work as well though. It was just a little to big to fit my flute, it still worked okay though. This product is a great buy, and a necessity for your flute.

Some nice parts, others not so useful.

Comments about Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit:

Some of the items in the kit just don't work well. The head joint swab in particular. It is too large to fit well. I did like the polishing mitt and the swab, however.
