Since the last poly-pad price increase in June 2019 there have been several
increases in the cost of the polyurethane foam of which poly-pads are made.
During the past 6 months alone there have been two significant increases in
the cost of foam totaling 40%, and additional increases are expected this spring.
I have resisted raising my prices, but I must do so now.
Thank you for your understanding. I wish I could say that the poly-pad is worth
its weight in gold, but a half ounce of gold is worth over $800, so all I can say
is that playing with a poly-pad on your shoulder is a lot more comfortable than
playing with half an ounce of gold on your shoulder, and it will not scratch the
varnish on your instrument!
