Nate, the Goretex pads are exclusive to Buffet's top-of-line horns (some
Prestige and Elite). Is this what you have?

The Goretex pads are available from B.H/Buffet, only in the sizes used by
Buffet. I have installed several sets, including one of my Concertos. It
is simply a standard Buffet skin pad with an extra covering of the goretex
material.

They are very easy to install, despite being slightly large IMO for the
cups. They seal very well, and I expect they will wear like iron. They are
BRIGHT white, but smooth and slightly shiny. I don't see the resemblance to
styrofoam.

Regards

Dave Lane
