New Product - Key Leaves!

Sax Nugget...

We're always on the lookout for innovative products. One little nugget we found this year at NAMM 2018 was Key Leaves. Since about 7th grade, I've always been frustrated when my saxophone G# key sticks. Every sax player knows that embarrassing situation of playing in an ensemble, reading and fingering G#, and what comes out the bell? G!! The same for low C# and C comes out the bell, and we use our weak right hand pinky to play Eb and it won't budge and we honk a D instead, as if the pad is glued shut. Well, I'm excited about Key Leaves, because this simple new product holds all three of these keys open while the instrument is not in use (without affecting the ring seat on the pad.) This allows these 3 troublesome pads to dry, preventing the frustration and embarrassment of wrong notes due to sticking pads. I'm going to be using Key Leaves on my sax, and we're happy to offer them to our customers too. Check out the product listing and a quick video below!
