E-Series: We’re extremely proud and excited to introduce the Valentino E-Series flute pad. Made with an engineered felt, engineered backing, and a wrapped bladder skin surface, this premium pad has all of the great features a technician could want. Because of its highly-precise dimensions and great stability, it is easy to install, it reacts well to shimming, and it’s very forgiving with respect to design tolerances in different model instruments. It also 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 yellow styling, the E-series blends well with other pads, making it convenient and affordable to use them where you need them.
