Subj: [kl] Warped reeds
Date: Mon, 26 Feb 2001 22:11:19 -0500


I've been having a problem lately with warping reeds. I bought a box of
Mitchell Lurie 4.5 reeds, which all looked fine when I got them, but
within a week or two about half of them (unused) had warped. I kept the
whole box in my clarinet case. Several reeds that I had been using
(same brand and strength, different batch) also became warped.

Is there any way to fix a warped reed? And what's the best way to store
reeds? I used to use one of those reed cases that Vandoren makes, the
kind that holds four at once, but my reeds got moldy very quickly, so
now I keep them in the little plastic things they're sold in.
