Pads and Parts
Also, read about the common pads and parts used on woodwind repairs:Miles is Kentucky's exclusive Schmidt Gold Pad Technician.
More about Schmidt Gold PadsThe thin film that covers the pads affects the tone of your flute and the tonal qualities of Gold are well known to be beneficial. Bladderskin hurtsyour tone and absorbs some of your precious sound and energy. Gold reflects all of that beautiful sound to the listening audience. What you get is a focused, well-centered tone that is rich, resonant and warm.
Miles is also a Straubinger Pad Technician. The Straubinger pad is used by some of the world's most discriminating flute makers. These pads are very consistent and will give your flute a firm and precise feel. We recommend these pads for all handmade flutes, and in some cases intermediate flutes.More about Straubinger Pads

'I play everything from piccolo to bari: Miles works on all of my instruments. Each time, they play better than they did before! He also sold me my Miyazawa flute and Selmer soprano sax. Sometimes I don't know which is better - his unbeatable sales/service or expert repair!'
