Why the quality of the sound of wind intruments depends on the quality of pads

_rdv5033_snapseedWhy the quality of the sound of wind intruments depends on the quality of pads

High quality Pads, handmade and finely worked with extreme precision bring a perfect tightness. Some of them, very complex to make, like Saxofon pads with resonator, give a real soul to the sound of the instrument.

High quality  Pads, manufactured with chosen materials, are in perfect harmony with the tone holes of the instrument. Their forms, finely worked, make a very efficient plugging of the tone holes, and give the instrument a unique touch.

Our high quality pads are manufactured often with leather, a noble material, delicate to use in the smallest pieces but finest and superior to the bladder. The leather pads are very resistent to humidity and condensation.

A full range of pads

Chedeville-Lelandais pads are available in all sizes, no matter the material used: leather, bladder…

Our pads are avalaible by pieces or by sets, to allow a total renovation of the instrument.
