Just to share info, if it hasn’t already been done.
The other evening my pads came out of my Oracle, “oh dear” says i. Now it just so happened that i had to reseal around my bathroom basin, so i’d just purchased a tube of silicone sealent.
So last night i cleaned the grove where the old response pads were and put in the bathroom sealent, i’ve just put a new string on and pow ! looper is back in business, and because it was silicone for the bathroom its also anti mould .
As a follow up to this i wouldn’t recommend doing this for a looper as it isn’t as grippy as the pads, but for a non responsive its certainly worth consideration as an alternative.
I’m still going to use pads in future as its less faff, and i’m not replacing alot. But if i was getting through loads i think i’d definitely move over to silicone.
Thoughts anyone ?
