The Vortex Air Torch™ from MusicMedic is designed to decrease padding time on all woodwind instruments, whilst eliminating burnt materials such as felt, cork, and lacquer.
With 0-500 degree celsius temperature control as well as an air velocity controller, the Vortex Air Torch™ allows a technician to decide the exact temperature and velocity of air that touches the instrument. 3 different sizes of Silicone Tips allow you to reduce or increase the size of the opening, to suit different size pad cups. Replacements tips are available.
The new and improved Vortex Air Torch™ has an attractive and sleek aluminium housing, but the biggest improvements are inside - The upgraded double-sided circuit board is custom designed and is far more durable and long lasting. The On/Off switch is upgraded with a sturdy switch. Setting the airflow and air temperature is now faster than ever! The air temperature and air speed are displayed via a digital screen. You can now program 3 custom temperature and airflow settings with the “Do”, “Re”, and “Mi” buttons.
Another great new feature is when you take the torch handle from the holster, a blue light blinks to indicate that the torch is heating up. Normally, when you place the torch back in the holster, it begins to cool down. If desired, you can select the Manual override button, which disables the auto shut-off feature so you can continue to use the torch while it is stationary.
The two meter long cord is a fire retardant silicon based cord that won't melt. Just like all MusicMedic electronics, we offer their 1 year repair or replacement warranty on the Vortex Air Torch™, and can return items utilising their in-house repair service. This is the 220 volt version for Europe and Asia.
