 Changing pads with cork or synthetic?
Author: JeanD

I am looking at changing the pads on my clarinet, and I am wondering about the reasons to use cork pads instead of synthetic pad like Valentino.

1. What are the advantages of using cork instead of synthetic pads for C#, Eb left and right?

2. Should cork pads be used for other notes as well?


3. Why is the register key always using a cork pad?

I know everyone hates the "this has already been discussed before, do a search" response.......but, the pros and cons of various pad types have been debated at length on this forum, so..........
