"I have struggled with sticky G# keys for a long, long, long, long time...however since I've been using the the Key Leaves I've not had a sticky G# key. Fantastic! ...At the end of the day, I'm interested in not having a sticky G# key....and secondly that my pads last longer. And this looks like it's going to be a solution to do it!"
