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

I have been playing clarinet for almost four and a half years now, and saxophone for almost two. However, it wasn’t until now that I considered getting a case for all my reeds. One of the top priorities for me was its ability to hold a variety of reeds, as tenor saxophone reeds are quite a bit bigger than clarinet reeds. Thankfully, this reed accomplishes this, and more.

This reed case is a square, about 3.5″ on each side. There is a hatch in the front that you must pull down to open. The case is not air-tight, which allows the reed to moisturize, even if you do not have the included humidity  pack. For example, I know that some people prefer to place reeds in a plastic bag with a wet paper towel. Although that is fine too, I know prefer to use this case. It can fit up to 8 reeds, of any size; whether it is clarinet, bass clarinet, or any saxophone. The humidity pack has a few clasps in the bottom of the case, so that it holds in place, but can still be replaced when it loses its usefulness in only 45 to 60 days. Although I have not had this long enough to have that pack expire, I will probably not buy another one, as they are at least $15. Another of the problems that I have found is the huge size, although I guess that can be offset by the wide range of sizes available for the case to hold.

Overall, I believe that this is a great product, with a few flaws, including its size and the humidity pack.
