 Re: What sort of pad is this?

These open cell neoprene-faced sheet cork pads are all a bit hit and miss - some may seal well while others can leak like sieves. I've seen similar on Peter Eaton clarinets with massively variable results, although the only positive is they are silent in their operation.

I had a clarinet come in a little while back where they'd been used and looked like crap as they all had jagged and frayed edges as though they were cut with a blunt chainsaw and whoever installed them even tried to bevel the speaker key pad with the neoprene top layer on it, leaving the remaining bit of neoprene flapping about.
