Why Do I Need a Reed Case?

Why Do I Need a Reed Case?

Well, basically a good reed case is needed to protect and prolong the life of your reed.  Whether you’re purchasing your reeds or making them on your own, we all know that having a good reed is an asset.  A good reed case does not need to be expensive; it just needs to do its job effectively. 

Look for these things when choosing your reed case:

1.      Does it stay closed when stored?

2.      Can you get your reed in and out easily without damaging the tip?

3.      Will your reed be able to dry out while in the case? (Something that is all plastic could be problematic.)

If you answered yes to these questions, then your reed case is suitable.  If you are looking for a good, inexpensive reed case, check out the selection from Double or Nothing Reeds … WOW!
