It sounds as if you are asking whether it is ok to mix pads with resonators with pads without resonators. I see nothing wrong with doing that. I would add however that when changing one or two pads on the upper stack, or lower stack I get better results by replacing them all. The reason is that it is harder to regulate the keys when one pad is new and supple and the pad it closes is old and hard. Of course on the independent keys that operate alone, it makes no difference.

I have done a few old C-mels using the white roo pads from Music Medic (.160" thick) and they work great. I also like the way they look on the old silver saxes with the seamless domed resonators.
