I have one Harrison Bass Clarinet reed holder (will hold over 10), one
Alto Sax Harrison...holds 7, one Alto Sax Harrison for my Basset Horn
(holds 7), one Eb Sop. clarinet Harrison...holds 8, one Harrison Bb holds
6, one Selmer holds 12, one Selmer holds 6 or 7, and a couple of really
old leather bound copies of the Selmer that have plexiglass (I bought em
from Shifrin in the late '70's......)....they are great!......I use them

I never use my vandoren, or other cases that were gifts awhile back.
