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

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
