The Low Profile Rivet Punch is made in the USA at MusicMedic.com. Use for installing resonators on saxophone pads. Constructed of highest quality hardened steel, the unique design splits the rivet close to the pad backing so that the rivet won't protrude beyond the edge of the leather wrapped around the back of the pad. This helps to ensure easier pad installation and eliminates the need to pound the rivet flat after the resonator has been installed. The plastic sleeve around rivet punch holds the pad backing in place while the rivet is being split. This is a high quality and long-lasting tool, and you can send it back to MusicMedic.com and we'll sharpen it for you.
Purchasing pads without resonators decreases inventory and allows resonators to be sized to tone holes. This tool will work with all metal resonators that use rivets, including Seamless Domed resonators.
