A fellow who I've been corresponding with over the past year, has been developing a new type of saxophone pad. The pad is made of MDF & silicone, rather than traditional leather. Theo wrote an article for my site, which I published yesterday. It includes a link to the remainder of the prototype pads that he is selling on eBay. This is a very interesting idea, and one I thought I would bring to everyone's attention here. Theo is an engineer from Holland. He and I have the same tastes in vintage Max Keilwerth horns, which is how we originally got to writing each other. What do you guys think? I thought it was a very interesting concept. He has been using these pads on his M.K. President (pre-Hohner), and apparently they work really well.
