Hey Y'all,

Is there anywhere I can get a set of palm key risers for a soprano? I have a vintage Conn Pan-American in silver plate that has an amazing sound and usable ergos all around, but I just can't cope with the LH palm keys. I am looking for a cheap rubber slip on set like the ones pro-tec makes but I wasn't sure if these would fit a soprano.

Thanks,
Nic

There have been a number of threads here about making your own with Sugru. It's inexpensive, and you can make them exactly the way you want them to be.

I used Runyon rubber risers on a tenor, which were fine, but they don't last forever, and they're one size fits -- or doesn't really fit -- all.

My local repair shop used bondo to build up the palm keys on my Martin, and (don’t laugh) I use silver fingernail polish to color. I’d probably do better with silver model paint but it works just fine.
