 Pad savers
Author: Simon 
Date:   2012-01-05 01:24

I have been using pad savers since day one. I had recently serviced my clarinet by a very reputable tech. and his advice was that he wasn't a great fan of pad savers. His prefernce was to swab the clarinet and let it dry and don't use the pad savers.

I have always thought that pad savers were a good thing for keeping the bore and pads dry. Or is it better to swab the clarinet and use cigarette paper for the pads that close.

What are peoples' thoughts/suggestions on this subject?
