 RE: Pad Cup Heater
Author: shmuelyosef

Curious if there are updated thoughts on this topic after 16 years. I have, for years, used an industrial hot air gun with a variety of nozzles (smallest is about 1/4" diameter) for heating pad cups. Never had any trouble until recently, working on a newish plastic (unknown material) clarinet I singed the edges of the recess on an A throat key (not the pad seat, but the border with the body) while seating. The edges of that recess were very sharp and the damage disappeared with the slightest easing of the edge, but put a nervousness in my brain about plastic clarinets. Have never had any trouble with hard rubber/ebonite or Resonite, but I'm seeing more of these very lightweight plastic instruments.
