When I get my piccolo in tune, I want to keep it together. It’s so much easier to adjust than to start over, so I hate to have to take it apart to swab in a rehearsal or performance. Plus, if you’re doubling with flute (like I usually do) you have less time to swab because you’re switching back and forth. I needed something to swab away moisture fast so I can get back to playing without retuning. The other thing, you know that smell that comes out of your students’ case when they haven’t been swabbing their instrument after practice? I’ve been a performer and teacher of flute for more than 20 years, and I’ve seen a lot of crazy things happen with flutes and piccolos. I wanted a device I could use in rehearsals and performances to wick away moisture without taking my instrument apart and that had no hard metals or plastics that could scratch or dent the inside of my instrument. I also wanted to reduce the possibility of my younger students damaging their flutes with the rod, and also encourage them to do a better job of taking care of their instrument between lessons. That’s why I created the Flute Hoot Floozi cleaner.
The Floozi Piccolo Cleaner is a patented cleaning device for your piccolo. It is approx. 14 inches long (including handle). The flexible Floozi is inserted in the foot end of your piccolo and will swab the entire length without disassembling the instrument. It is made of soft flannel or micro suede with a decorative pendant handle. Available only from Flute Hoot!
New for 2018 – All Floozi Piccolo Cleaners come with a breathable muslin storage bag to help keep your floozi clean and dry.
