About Reeds…


Reeds must be adequately hydrated in order for them to "speak", avert leaking, etc. Soak up to the binding for 5'-10'…less in humid, moist situations…more in desert, or winter heating conditions.

Please note that hairline cracks extending up to 3mm or so from the binding, will not adversely affect the reed. Reeds arriving with a crack
in the tip are not usable. Please call me if this happens.

After placing an order, please check e-mail/phone for possible questions I may have about your order.

After I receive a reed and/or cane order, it could be
5-15 days before I can get the order in the mail.
All orders are sent out as soon as possible.
