• Please do not over soak my reeds. Just dip them in water and then shake off the excess. The reeds are ready to play after sitting one or two minutes.

  • My reeds have one side of the tip cut shorter. Please face the reed toward you where the thread crosses over for the best response.
     
  • For optimal performance, a reed will last for about 10-12 hours of solid playing. 
  • Playing on all the reeds in your case with keep them in good working order.

  • It is best to have at least three working reeds at all times.​

  • Reeds change with the climate and seasons, so having more than one working reed will ensure happy practice sessions and great performances!
