Valentino Brings Dealers Immediate Value And Long-Term Savings

“We constantly strive to increase productivity and Valentino products make a real impact on our quality and bottom line for both the brass and woodwind sides of the house. Refinements in the product line have made all the difference for our technicians and customers. We look forward to seeing what innovations Valentino comes up with next.”

Instrument dealers and rental companies like Music & Arts, NEMC and Veritas, understand the practical advantages and tremendous value that Valentino brings to their businesses. These companies know from experience that woodwind instruments with Valentino Greenback pads play better and last longer at a far lower cost than those with ordinary pads. Valentino pads are affordable and easy to install and they’re incredibly durable: waterproof, easy to clean and completely unaffected by outdoor use. Because they’re incredibly stable and seal so much better than ordinary pads, instruments with Valentino require far fewer trips to the shop for minor repairs and they stay in adjustment even when stored for long periods of time. Where technicians want to use wrapped pads, Valentino offers a range of styles that are exceptionally well made, easy to install and very affordable. Valentino helps dealers and rental companies to be more profitable by keeping the instruments playing at their best, off the repair bench and in the hands of students where they belong.

Greenback: Our most popular category, Valentino Greenbacks come in a variety of materials, and synthetic cork, in sizes to suit any type of woodwind including Flute, Piccolo, clarinet, Oboe and Bassoon. Long the choice of professional clarinetists, Greenbacks are the ideal option for top performance and tonal consistency in an affordable, long-lasting pad.

Legend: The Valentino Legend is a superior performance saxophone pad that lives up to its name with exceptional feel, color and dynamic range. Designed for professionals and advanced artists, the proprietary design features kid-wrapped construction over dense felt. The natural kidskin is untreated so it won’t stick the way other, pretreated pads do, and it allows the artist to choose the exact type of surface treatment and color they desire for a truly custom feel and appearance.

Blue Back: Custom, made-to-measure pads for manufactures, the Blue Back is a unique product created specifically for manufactures whose instruments demonstrate an exceptional degree of accuracy in their key work. Designed for press fit installation on the top 13 and floated in on the bottom 4, the Blue Back plays like the greenback but with the advantage of highly efficient installation for mass production applications.
