Just bought a King Zephyr alto 1953 with pearl touches and double socket neck. Put a Runyon Custom Jazz #7 with the spoiler and the thing plays like a dream! Only I've never had a double socket neck. It is a little sticky when I put it on or take it off. How do you clean the gunk out of that tight space made by the double seal?

You can also use Q tips to jam most keys of a horns for shipping.

Jason - how many of those did you find on the Black Pearl? ;-)

Try a pipecleaner, although they don't go by that name anymore, I think they're called chenille stems or some such.

Or chew up the end of a toothpick and cram it down in there.

Try a Dr. Brown's bottle nipple brush - as found in the Baby/Infant's bottle department.

get some of them fuzzy between the teeth cleaners in the dental department of your favorite store.

hope this helps

truthfully Ive gotta say Ive never cleaned between the double socket neck on my horn and Its never given me trouble, But Bruce's idea is probably pretty solid and should clean it out
