OK, I give up. I've been in this business for a while and haven't heard
of "Gortex pads." Who sells them, of what material are they made. Are
they installed in the same manner as a conventional pad.
Also a note about Straubinger pads: Where as I can see his (Dave's)
concern as to how the pads are installed, is it really necessary to have
expensive and extensive training in order to learn how to install a
specific kind of pad? Keep in mind, I have no idea how much Dave
Straubinger charges for this training, I'm only going on Klarinetwork
hearsay. Also please keep in mind that I think David is a fine
technician and I like the pads he has developed.
