I ordered the Roo Pads at MusicMedic.com for my Mark VI 168xxx and I received:
With rezonator:
44 mm - 2x
42 mm - 1x
40,5 mm - 3x
36 mm - 1x
34 mm - 1x
32 mm - 1x
30mm - 3x
26 mm - 2x
24mm - 3x
18 mm - 4x
Without resonator
14 mm - 1x
9 mm - 2x

but as I see the "B" pads are about 50mm, so those are definitely to small for my sax.

I emailed MusicMedic and they said that they will replace the pads but I have to send them sizes of pads that I need.

And here comes the question:

Where I can find correct sizes of pads for Mark VI 168xxx?

I searched forum but haven't found anything.

I will be grateful for any help.

You need to just measure them...pretty easy to do with a small rule, easier with a caliper, but in a pinch you can just use a tape measure with good eyeballs. You measure the inside diameter...measure across the widest spot in 2-3 places and average to the nearest 0.5mm. Might want to look at this http://www.musicmedic.com/info/articles/num_17.html

Sometimes Selmer, and other manufacturers, change a key cup's diameter during the run of a model. (Perhaps simply using up old stock before changing to a better size?)

The only way of being sure is to measure, then try the pad of that size for fit. Often 0.5 mm larger than that is a better fit.

Gordon's right. Selmer used to publish a list of sizes in their accessories catalogue but I found quite a few variations. Best way is always to measure.
