While playing a saxophone, the inside (bore) will get wet, and the pads will absorb that moisture/spit/condensation (which may also contain deposits of what you ate before playing!).
To prolong the life of the pads and the instrument and prevent the build-up, this moisture should be removed after each playing session. Placing a padsaver into the bore of the instrument will allows moisture to be absorbed into the centre of the padsaver, rather than the pads.
The padsaver is impregnated with a drying agent that absorbs any moisture in the instrument, helping keep your alto sax in top condition - clean and dry.

WHY ARE THERE TWO PRICES?
What service can there possibly be for a simple accessory?!
If you know exactly what you need and know what to do with it, then buying online is great.

See and compare it
There’s always a choice, so why not see, touch and try the real thing – which keyboard stool is more comfortable, will all my accessories fit in that guitar case, which piano pedal responds best…
We use many of these accessories ourselves, so why not let us explain it – how to use a digital tuner, how to apply valve oil to a trumpet, which strings are best for your kind of playing…
Let us show you how
The more you do it, the better you get. Why not let us do that two minute job – we’ll fit single strings for free and retune your guitar, fit and tune a drum skin, show you how to clean your sax…
