I don't think so, those brakes should work pretty well.
I bought the cartridge style Kool stops because my modern brakes had trouble with thick pads. They were a little expensive but they come with a spare set of pads and the holders look nice. Definitely not the cheap route.
You might have luck with the kool stop thin line pads. I use them on my other bikes and the work very well but look a little strange.
The Kool stop continentals might
work, but know that they are on the thick side.
