Question
hello I'm from Brazil have 3 clarinets for repairs please can tell which pad and recommend? pardon for writing!
thank you

Answer
Hello Reginalodo,
Some repairmen have said they think  PRESTINI' reeds are among the best...As they both do good work, maybe they are correct...I personally do not go for leather pads...They last longer but  can soak up the sound [muffle it]  so I would stick with normal 'onion  skin type.....Cheers    JACK
