Stop Sticky Pads from Ruining Your Oboe

Prevent sticky pads and keep your oboe clean with help from Key Leaves Oboe Key Props. This patented system helps prevent pad rot and tone hole corrosion by safely propping open the C, Bb, and high trill keys, allowing your oboe to breathe and air dry. Swabs often miss some of the condensation that builds up underneath closed tone holes, leaving your oboe vulnerable to cracking in those areas. But with Key Leaves from Sweetwater in tow, you’ll extend the life of your instrument and cut repair expenses by keeping it clean, dry, and safe from cracking.

Key Leaves Oboe Key Props come in two parts. The loop strap opens up the high trill keys, allowing them to air dry. Likewise, the tenon prop opens the C and Bb keys while staying stationed on the tenon cork — it can also fit around the tenon cap! The Key Leaves are soft and flexible, so they can quickly be adjusted to raise or lower the keys as needed.

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.
