We’re extremely proud and excited to introduce the Valentino E-Series clarinet pad. Made with an engineered felt, engineered backing, and a wrapped bladder skin surface, this premium pad has all of the great features that a technician could want. Because of its highly-precise dimensions and great stability, it’s easy to install, it’s very forgiving with respect to design tolerances in different model instruments, and it plays and feels phenomenal. Best of all, we’ve been able to produce an American-made pad that is superior to anything in this moderate price category. With its innovative wrapped construction and classic white styling, the E-Series blends well with other pads, making it convenient and affordable to use them where you need them.

Masters Series:  Valentino Masters Series clarinet pads are the favorite choice of top technicians who regularly service professional instruments. With a more complex structure than our Greenback series, the Masters Series pad features a firmer and thinner top that takes a minimal impression, making it easy to achieve exemplary results with less work. The rigid backing is stepped like a beveled or “Buffet” style back, providing greater stability and allowing pads to practically float themselves. The high-tech laminated construction allows these pads to seal beautifully. The unique mechanical properties of Masters Series pads make them a pleasure to install. Their exceptional acoustic qualities make them a joy to play on, producing an ideal tone with a perfect balance between the brightness of cork and the darkness of felt.  
When ordering Masters Series pads for clarinet, order a size .5mm smaller than a felt pad.
