When I used to make reeds a few years ago from Steuer
blanks, the reeds seemed to last 4-6 weeks. Does this seem to be a cane problem, or could it be that I'm doing something to cause this? I suspect it's me.>>

Chris, I know you too well to think that you're not seasoning and curing the blanks for about a week before you make the reed.

If you're curing the cane adequately, it has to be cane that's just too mushy.

Seems like there's a lot of that around lately.
