S.W. Silvers Pad Ordered:
 
1 Attachment(s)
Just an informational heads up. I successfully ordered a S.W. Silvers recoil pad from Kynamco LTD, Bury St. Edmun, GBR. It was simple, I first ordered the pad on their web page and they in turn emailed my invoice the next day. At 3:30 A.M. I called Steve Boor and gave him my CC information. The Red pad was billed at 32.05 (discounted a bit from their published price) & Carriage was 23.25 in their currency, converted to US Dollars my CC was billed $77.36. I mentioned that there were no US distributers currently retailing their pads and he said they had dropped the ball in that regard. He also mentioned that in the past they had set up for the Las Vegas show.
So, if you need an original Silvers pad it's really quite easy.
No 3 Recoil Pad Red or Black 38.46
No 3A Recoil Pad Best London Orange 40.26
No 4 Recoil Pad Red or Black 41.40
No 4A Recoil Pad Best London Orange 43.44

I bought several from CSMC (Galazan's) a couple years ago, in those exact same bags, at the Bray's Island Exposition. Do they no longer handle them?

I had previously checked their webpage and the one they offer is a reproduction I think.
They said something like they worked hard to duplicate the correct color. In their photo the color didn't look correct to me. I believe the ones you procured were either sold out and or discontinued.

Update on delivery:
 
I just now received an update via FedEx that the Silvers package from Stansted, ES was picked up. I am impressed with their customer service.

Galazan did offer both original and repro Silvers pads.

Galazan still offers the S W Silvers #3 for $50.00

Maybe it's just me but the photo on their webpage doesn't look the same. I'm considering putting it on my DHE. I haven't made up my mind but I would only use an original one. There's no doubt in my mind by getting one from across the pond.

They offer both red, & orange and are marked S W Silvers on the back.

Those are not legitimate Silvers pads. They are reproductions. They are nice pads though. I have used them for years. They are un-spurred. Have straight plugs vs. tapered and are harder rubber than the actual silvers pads.

When galazan offered the actual silvers pads they were $75.

Galazan offers both reproduction & S W Silvers marked pads that are the same current manufacturer as the ones you get in the UK. S W Silvers probably hasn't been in business for many years & whether you buy the S W Silvers pad here or the UK its the same pad. The new pads are better than the original pads that degrade with shinking and cracking
