My dad has already spent 100$ on musical things, and since the oboe didnt come with a swab, i am swabless.

Not really the main point of the Yahoo question, but a sad thing to read.

The swab I recommend most from my not-so-favorite store is all of $3.75. It’s the first one listed here.


  1. No kidding! Or get some feathers from the local craft store! I bet that kid can find the $3.75 for a milkshake or burger or whatever kids spend their money on.

  2. I heard things like this before. Drives me nuts! As if he/she can’t do a think about not having a swab. Argh!
