First off i want to say great job on this forum, its really awesome and informative! Now to business --
I have two saxes at home, one a cannonball, and another an ebay yas-23. The YAS-23 is pretty messed up.. Theres a lot of dings on it and the pads are deteriorating. badly. Its pretty playable, and its notthat bad of an instrument. The range is messed up i think because of the pads.
So i wanted to replace the pads on my YAS-23. I recently bought some SaxGourmet. They havent come in yet because theyre on backorder.
1. Should I replace the pads?
a. Is it possible for me to do it? (Im pretty good with my sax cause i do some minor repairs on it)
2. Are these pads very good quality/ produce good sound? (Im going to be in 11 th grade/ junior in high school)
a. i wont encounter any problems while using them will i?
3. ive read lots of instructions on installing pads, so can anyone reiterate the basic procedure of pad replacement?
