Is there anywhere I could order different types of key touches.. to replace the pearl looking ones that come with many horns..

I'd like to find colored ones, black rubberish ones, anything I can find.

nothing here...

Ferrees sells concave and convex pearls for saxes. Far as I recall, they are real m-o-p.

I think Ferrees/Allied/Badger sell a pearlescent goo that you can use to form pearl-like fingertouches.

But I'm not much interested in that.

I am having trouble finding pearl rollers and am likewise looking for pearl, amber, bakelite, etc.

I've ordered some stuff from bead catalogs (like for necklaces) but haven't found anything real suitable.

I think Ferees has plastic rollers.

I've had a little success having a local rock shop custom cut stones for saxes. A tiger-eye thumbrest and some decorative lapis lazuli stones to replace missing m-o-p on keyguards.

I have some abalone pearls that I soon plan to add to the site as well as a dark smoky looking pear which I need to learn more about. I only have a few sizes now. If you send me an Email with the diameters, I can check my stock. Short of that, try the ones from Cannonball. I always like the look of the Cannonball pearls.

the stones look cool but are horrible when they get wet, as you lose all traction. MOP gets friction when they are wet. I love the Super 20 pearls because of the non-slip factor.

While they look nice, I wonder how they hold up to heat when doing pad work? Would they shatter or crack?? I have not had to do any pad work on this latest generation of CB's. They play awesome though..
