Is "drying your pads" something that you would do regularly?
Correction: I use them for the same reason on my SML alto. All my other horns dry naturally.Essential for clarinet. And I think essential if your sax has rolled tone holes.
Ever since I started giving my SMLs palm keys, G#, C# and sometimes B natural a very quick wipe with the BG pad dryer after every practise/performance - they NO LONGER STICK!*
