 RE: bad Pad

Hi, Chuck -
Ditto to the above comments. Good advice.
I do my own pads. It's not terribly difficult but better left to a tech if you don't have some prior practice/(training) - they have the tools, supplies, and the 'expertise' to do it quickly. Your Selmer is probably a prety nice horn. If you're interested in doing it yourself, I'd humbly suggest finding an old horn (cheap)to get the 'feel of it' first before working on your good instrument.
Six months isn't too long to expect a pad to hold up. Maybe they'll replace it as a customer courtesy. Most shops will do a follow up adjustment, or a replacement, for you for free. It won't hurt anything to ask.
