Rico Multi-Instrument Reed Storage Case with Humidity Control Pack for all Clarinets and Saxophones   

Wow that's a mouthful!  But then, this case is worth talking about.

Reeds go haywire in the humidity.  Just like having a Poltergeist loose inside the cane, reeds start behaving erratically and all sorts of strange things are likely to happen.  With this case's reed vitalizer your reeds will remain stable in humid conditions.

Rico's signature reed case holds eight of any size clarinet or saxophone reeds, from Eb clarinet through Baritone Saxophone, and features Reed Vitalizer two-way humidity control technology.  Reeds are held snugly to a grooved surface, which prevents warping.  The airtight gasket ensures a proper seal, which keeps reeds safe and stable when traveling.  Each of our Reed Storage Cases comes with one humidity control pack in 73% relative humidity.

Stores 8 Clarinet or Saxophone reeds at the ideal humidity level

Includes one 73% relative   humidity pack, which requires minimal wetting for your reeds

Refill packs available in 58%, 73%, and 84%

Refill packs will last 45 to 60 days

How to keep your reeds in top shape:

I don’t mean take them to the gym, I’m talking about keeping them dry, secure and ready-to-play.
1.  Be gentle with your reed.  They are delicate little wafer-thin do-dads which require delicate handling.  Gnawing on them or using them to clean your teeth will dramatically reduce their life-span, maybe even inflict them with a fatal condition known as splitting, cracking or general reed death.  This is bad.


2.   Keep your reeds in a reed guard, like this one. Reed guards allow your reeds to dry out effectively between use and prolongs reed life by keeping them flat and protected. 

3.  Rotate your reeds so you have two or three that are ready to play at any time.  This requires that these reeds have been broken-in (a woodwind term for saddling your reed to your mouthpiece and making it play, until it blows and articulates freely).

4.  Keep your reeds away from puppies, pet rodents, small children and anyone who is likely to use them for ill gain. 

Bonus:   A must for a doubler, holding different sized reeds (clarinet / saxophone) easily.
