Product Details

Gemeinhardt Flute Cleaning Kit

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.

Cleans very well. A bit over priced

By Cecilia Libertella from Lindenhurst, NY on 10/7/2013 10:28:16 AM

I decided to get this for my gemeinhardt 73B because the keys were starting to tarnish and my cleaning supplies were basically dead. When I first used it on the keys, they looked brand new! I never thought I would see my frute shine again, but the metal in the cleaning swap accidently dent my flute :( I had to pay a good $150 for the dent and further scratches. Otherwise, I think this is good for high school students when they know what their doing ;)
