These are preformed soft pads to keep your fingers from slipping. They slip over the end of your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd valve lever tips. Sold in sets of 3. They can be installed with two different height options.

These Faxx lever pads (small) really hold your fingers on the levers with a no-slip grip. The cushioning they provide is most satisfying and make playing even more enjoyable. I've purchased and used the Faxx pads (large) on another horn with much success. The small size work well on vintage horns with round levers which are somewhat smaller than a U.S. dime. Lastly, these pads can also be used on Weiner horn valve levers as long as the levers are the round type and not too close to each other in order to provide sufficient space for proper movement of the levers.
I have short fingers that reach only the ends of the rotor levers. Once in a while a finger might slip off. These pads extend the levers just a bit, and they are grippy enough to keep my munchkin fingers from slipping. They are a very big help.
These pads are fatter than I expected. The grip on my horn is a touch too large for my hand so the additional height of the pads contributes to the grip issue.
I love them. They are soft and just tacky enough that my fingers don't slip off the levers.
