 Help needed setting lower four pads
Author: m1964

Hi,
I re-padded a Selmer 10, using membrane pads from Zhmelody.com.
While most of the pads went in without any problems, I have a problem with the lower 4 pads: E/B, F/C, F#/C#, G#/D#.

After finishing the clarinet, I found that it took a little more pressure that I would like, to close F/C and E/B keys completely.

Checked the pads and found that all 4 large pads do not seal well on their outer edge (the side facing away from the linkage).

What would be a solution?

I understand that thinner pads probably would fit better but I am not sure if the large pads exist in different thicknesses.

Can a thin shim (like a half-moon shaped piece of paper) be added between the pad and the cap?

I think I used glue pellets as pad adhesive. I also have white shellac, but prefer the glue because I use a soldering gun to heat the pad cups.

Thanks
