Original Sax Pads… I just took these white pads form a very old C-Melody saxophone. As you can see compared to a modern pad they lacked a little something.
No heavy paper backing. The glue just went straight to the felt.
No tone booster. Just a little thread in the center of the pad to hold it up. Modern pads have some sort of tone booster to hole them up in the pad cup.
Very little clue. You can see there is very little glue on the pads. The glue helps hold the seat of the pad.
