This simple accessory is necessary to keep your alto saxophone nice and clean. The cleaner it is, the better it will play. They are not expensive and will keep you from having to pay for expensive repairs.
When you play , moisture will build inside of your clarinet. This is bad. The moisture will ruin your pads. The cleaning swab helps to remove excess moisture to keep your clarinet playing longer.
The mouthpiece cap protects the mouthpiece, which is easily damaged, while you are not playing. It also protects your reed.
These will help protect the mouthpiece from your teeth and reduce the vibrations in your mouth. It will also allow you to have a more secure grip without you changing your embouchure.
This helpful little bit will help you maintain control over your flute. There are even finger rests for your index finger.
You may have thought that these were only for you ears (they really aren't for those either), but they have so many uses. Keep these around to get dirt and grit from between your rods.
A Dollar Bill
Or any piece of paper to help fix sticky pads. Just slide the paper in the opening, press down the key on the paper, and then slide the paper out. Works like a charm.
