Topic: HELP: swab stuck in tenor joint
STUCK SWAB: I AM SURE THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE PAST, BUT...I just got the silk swab stuck in the tenor joint my new Moosman 222CL while swabbing out after a lengthy rehearsal. It has a reverse pull through cord at the back end to pull back out, BUT that string is in too far and totally out of reach. It is really stuck solid. I had this happen to a FOX 601 about 15 years ago, but that was a cotton swab and had to ultimately send it back to the factory to remove the swab. I am not even sure how I did this this time, but was moving fast and suspect the swab somehow wrapped upon it self in some manner. I live in rural Maine and do not have easy access to any repair personnel. I SEEK ANY ADVICE YOU MAY HAVE.
