Saxophone Resonators

I purchase my saxophone pads without an installed resonator. It allows me to match a newly installed pad with the style of resonator already in the horn, and buying the pads that way is slightly cheaper.  Above is a set of 2 style resonators: one is flat, the other cone.  Below are the metal resonators I keep in stock.

The following is the process of installing plastic resonators.  Using the iron, you melt the back of the resonator.
