All clarinets will require re-padding. It is an unavoidable fact. The more you play, the sooner you will need to have this done. The good news is that we can turn your Clarinet around in a week with brand new pads. We use the highest quality leather pads, unless cork or another material is requested. Our pads are the same as used in the top Buffet instruments. Because of the cost, we do not offer re-padding to plastic body instruments, but if it is a family heirloom........
