Hello everyone,
I noticed that a few of you like the Goretex pads, while others "swear by"
the little yellow ones and some of you really like the idea of corking the
whole upper joint. When I saw Bob Scott just after Thanksgiving, he said my
horn looked like it could use new pads, and I notice when practicing, I
sometimes get water leaks at my top joint C#/G# pinkey key. My R-13 is a 1983
horn, I don't know if the origional owner ever had the pads redone, I've had
the horn for three and a half years, and I've never had more than minor key
adjustments done. The pads are dingy (not real dingy) white. How do you know
when they need replacing besides looking obviously worn? And, what do you think
I really need for my horn, I'm a college student, so my horn gets a good amount
of use and I can't part with it for long periods of time so if it needs to be
shipped to Timbuktu for padding, I just can't do it. But, one positive thing,
my folks are going to cough up the money for it, so price is not the end of the
world, sorta.
Looking forward to your suggestions,
