Protect your flute, or silver instrument, in style with our innovative, universal, anti-tarnish, handmade Tarnish Saver.
Created with the same high quality fabric from the Practice Series, sempre|flute Tarnish Savers protect your flute from tarnishing right in your flute case. The combination of our premium, patterned Practice Series cotton and anti-tarnish treated fabric creates an innovative way to protect your flute from tarnishing while you aren't even playing!
How it works:
Silver tarnish is created when the metal is exposed to sulfur-containing gases from the environment, the metal erodes and oxidizes creating dark discoloration when in contact with these gasses. The anti-tarnish treated cotton absorbs the sulfur compounds that cause tarnishing right in your flute case.
You may notice that the Tarnish Savers do not cover the entire surface area of the flute. But this isn't necessary due to the exact reasons above! The Tarnish Saver's purpose is to absorb those unsavory sulfur gasses that discolor your instrument--it does not need to be in physical contact with every part of the instrument to be effective.
Created in collaboration with Schmitt Music Flute Gallery.

Directions: place Tarnish Saver anti-tarnish treated cotton side DOWN so that it touches the top of your flute (logo side should face you when you open your case!). Close case gently. Replace as often as you see fit, however, one Tarnish Saver should last at least 6 months.
