 Pad Repair Advice
Author: Richard Starkly 
Date:   2021-10-13 16:13

Bought my first clarinet a couple of years ago (after renting for a while, with repairs included as part of my rental plan), and for the first time it it looks like I need to make a minor repair. It's a Buffet Prodige, The pad underneath the fourth right hand key on the upper body has come loose, there's just enough glue left holding it to the key right now that it's not causing me major issues but it is dropping off every so often and obviously isn't getting better.

I called up the shop I bought it from expecting they'd sell me some glue but they don't do that, instead they suggested I come in and have their guy fix it.

That feels like a waste of time and money for what's most likely a simple repair if only I knew which type of glue to use. Or do I just need to buy a new pad?

If anyone here can point me in the right direction that would be most appreciated.
