Measuring Saxophone Pad Cups

By Curt Altarac

If you are removing the old pad before measuring the pad cup, your job may be a little easier. You will need to use a ruler with millimeter marks and measure the pad that has been removed. 

If you would rather measure the pad cup, you will need to measure the portion of pad cup that the pad sits in normally. In either case be sure that you measure at the widest point of the pad or the cup.

The pads sold by are in millimeter sizes, so you need to either measure with a millimeter ruler, digital caliper, or use a conversion tool to change your measurements from 32nds to millimeters. Our Saxophone pads are sized in 0.5mm increments.
