Axe Padz Pad Dryers is the solution to an age old problem of sticking keys or pads on wind instruments. Axe Padz Pad Dryers are to be used after playing woodwind instruments or padded instruments to absorb the moisture generated while playing. Simply insert the Axe Padz Pad Dryer in between the tone hole and the key and depress several times (2-3). By doing so moisture is absorbed by the pad dryer which prevents sticking, particularly the keys that rest in the closed position. Axe Padz are made of 100% German made Rayon which quickly and easily absorbs moisture. Axe Padz are designed and manufactured in Texas.
