Pads-Saxophone

WHY 2 THICKNESSES? IS .025” THAT IMPORTANT?

 

    Most of our competitors stock only one thickness of sax pad.  We feel this is a big mistake, because it COSTS YOU MORE MONEY in the long run.  Most American Saxes use the .185” thickness as did the Selmer Paris and a few other foreign Saxes.  A couple of American Saxes and now the Asian ones use the thinner thickness. 
    If you stock only the thinner pad, then every time you work on a horn designed to use thicker pads, you have to spend 4-5 minutes gluing or shimming the pad to make it thicker, so it will hit in the back.  On the other hand, if you try to use a thicker pad where a thinner one was designed to go, you must bend down the front of the cup and re-regulate everything to make it work.  This takes several minutes and with the average shop time being worth about $1 a minute—that’s $4-5 of un-billable time wasted, when you could have just popped in the right thickness pad.   
    That is why Ferree’s stock both the .160” and the .185” thicknesses.  That is why “so called budget pad distributors” stock an in-between .170” or .175” pad, which is actually wrong for both situations and costs you money.
