Sticky pads are noisy, cumbersome, and hugely disruptive to a saxophonist. Although no pad powder lasts forever, MusicMedic.com's PadMagic offers the longest lasting results of any pad powder on the market. PadMagic is a blend of 7 unique compounds that combat pad stickiness in several ways. PadMagic preserves and conditions the leather and forms a micro-thin non-stick surface on the pad and its tone hole, which helps prevent build-up that leads to stickiness. This effective pad solution comes with two microfiber cloths, one for cleaning and one for application.
Use the cleaning cloth to remove grime and deposits from the surface of the pad and tone hole by gently closing the pad on the strip and pulling it out from below the pad.
Next, use the applicator which is impregnated with PadMagic to apply the powder to the pad and tone hole. PadMagic will not cake up, holds onto the leather, and doesn't stick to itself. Rejuvenate the applicator by simply dipping it in the PadMagic powder or mixing more PadMagic powder in the bag.
