We’ve all been there. You try to hit a G# or a low C# and nothing happens. Turns out the pad is glued tight to the tone hole. So you reach down and open it manually. And then it sticks again. Now there’s a better fix. Pad-Stick. You simply run the Pad-Stick strip between the closed pad and tone hole under light pressure. Its fabric surface magically cleans the pad. The Pad-Stick strip is tapered so the narrow end works perfectly on small keys and the wide end is great for big ones. And if it ever gets dirty, a little soap and water will clean it right up. As a repair tech, I always have Pad-Stick on my bench. I love this product. It really works.
Pro Tip: As a preventative measure, run Pad-Stick between your closed keys before putting your horn away to keep your pads nice and tidy.
