Get more out of your reeds
All reed payers have experienced the frustration of reeds in a box that don’t perform! The chances of having a box of reeds that all play well is next to zero.
Over the years there has been all kinds of methods touted by different players using sand paper, glass & knives that are capable of inflicting serious injury!
Recently we discovered the “Reed Geek” which is a cleverly engineered pice of high quality carbon steel with a number of different edges.
The reed geek allows you to work on all aspects of the reed!
Being a player that had not in the past worked very much on my reeds I was initially skeptical! However myself & our resident pro sax player took up the challenge!
We worked through a box reeds each & picked out the ones that didn’t play well.
After using the reed geek as er the instructions I can honestly saying that we both ended up with a full box of playable reeds!
