REKA makes everything you need to keep your instrument in perfect playing condition. With brass instruments, regular and thorough inner cleaning is a must. Residues enter the instrument during playing. With time, they alter the dimensions of the air passages, which disturbs the playing qualities, and they chemically attack the inside of the tubing, eating at the metal over time. These residues also influence the flow of air through the instrument and even affect how the metal vibrates. With the materials available until now, properly cleaning the INSIDE of a brass instrument has not been possible. The ancient method of soaking the instrument in water and shaking and turning it to loosen built-up residues is time-consuming and quite ineffective. With REKA Cleaning Sets, you have the perfectly suited materials to make it fast, easy, and comfortable to care for any brass instrument properly, thus retaining optimal playing qualities and maximizing longevity. Each Cleaning Set includes four parts, of which the most important is the sponge rubber swab. This tool is matched to the bore of the instrument and is pulled easily through every tube and crook for effective removal of all foreign substances. Cleaning the sharpest bends and even the short sections between valve casings is no problem.
Reka Trumpet / Cornet / Flugel Cleaning Kit

Worked fine on a Bb Cornet although you might suffer a moment of panic half way through when you wonder what you would do if it broke off in the middle.
On a soprano (a Yamaha one anyway) it won't go around the bend so wasn't so useful for cleaning that.
The valve cleaning sponge was useful on both however.
