That is precisely why I DO NOT use them. The inevitable shedding fibers can play havoc on your keywork and the proper sealing of the pads to the tone holes.Carbs said:I used them on most of mine. Very durable, haven't had a problem with the little strands comeing off in my horn. Its in my Selmer case that it bugged me. Look down and holy crap my black case is blue!!
Oh I have indeed used them in the past (playing the sax for 30 years, there isn't much I haven't tried), and also acquired many horns second hand who's previous owners used them, and can very much confirm first hand the shedding and resultant foul up issues.milandro said:(with all due respect to all the other people's opinions..... most of those who say that padsavers would give problems have never used padsavers so, how do they know these things will do what they think that they would do?).
