I've had to replace a couple of the pads on my "new" vintage C melody, and they were stuck in with a dark brown, glassy adhesive. I want the pad cups cleaned before I put new pads in rather than slap them down on top of that crap.
The problem is, it won't come out.
I've scratched at it with a screwdriver a bit, and I could probably chisel it out, but scratch the living daylights out of everything. How do I go about removing it? Is there a solvent I could use to get it out? Thanks
