The Ultimate End Cap for Saxophone

Saxophone end plugs are supposed to protect the top end of your saxophone when inside your case. But they don’t always do what they’re intended to do. Enter the GapCap by Key Leaves, a simple little accessory that solves a few major issues with typical end plugs. For one, its ingenious design lets air vent through the body tube. Normal end plugs tend to trap moisture inside, which can cause pads to rot faster. But the GapCap allows your sax to air dry and prevent issues from moisture buildup. Some end plugs don’t exactly fit your case either, which can lead to your sax jiggling around inside and damaging the octave key arm. But with the GapCap, you can adjust it to fit any case and keep your saxophone snug and safe. Saxophonists everywhere — including players at Sweetwater — love the results. Extend your saxophone’s life and save on repair costs with the GapCap!

The GapCap features a flex spring wall which lets it fit inside any saxophone from any brand. Its flexible design allows air to vent through the instrument, giving your sax a chance to breathe and air dry. Its spring wall also acts as a shock absorber, minimizing the amount of impact damage to your instrument when inside the case. And if it doesn’t fit your case right away? Simply adjust the top screw until it’s in the perfect position to keep your sax safe. You can even use the included Lock Nut to keep the GapCap in the perfect position every time.

Key Leaves: inspiring better care for woodwind instruments

While growing up fixing horns at his local music store, Key Leaves founder Rulon Brown came across the same issues over and over again. As a professional saxophonist himself, he grew tired of the same sticky keys plaguing players with costly and unnecessary repairs. To help resolve these issues, he created Key Leaves, a line of woodwind care products that create a natural solution to sticky pads and other repair issues. And as many of our Sweetwater saxophonists can attest, the results speak for themselves. An ever-growing list of teachers, students, and professional musicians are thrilled with how Key Leaves extend the life of their beloved instruments and keep them playing longer.
