These nylon plastic pad retainers where used in some Bundy USA, Boosey and Hawkes and Buescher Flute models. They where called Tone Boosters due to the similar domed design as Saxophone pad resonators. They are often also referred to as pad snaps due to the action of installing them - they are a quick push fit onto a soldered in receiver in the pad cup.

I used these as a substitute on an obsolete Emporer Flute. They worked perfectly. The only supplier of nylon pad retainers I could find. Please keep supplying them.

I needed Selmer flute pad retainers and I could not find them here in the USA. Dawkes Music came through with the identical item! The pad retainers are a perfect match to the originals. If you need something and Dawkes Music has it, buy it, you won't be disappointed.
