 Cozy cover delays clarinet freeze
Author: fskelley

This morning was my first opportunity to try out my new RitasReeds clarinet dust cover / cozy. I warmed up and set my clarinet on the stand before church started as usual, but this time I put the new cover over it. 30 min later it was time to play, and instead of being ice cold from the A/C, clarinet was pretty much as I had left it- much better than previous occasions!

I am sure there are places and times that justify the trouble and expense of electrically heated covers like I saw at ClarinetFest. I expect they don't sell those in large numbers. But rather than just leaving your clarinet to "ice up" in the open air, makes a lot of sense to cover it some way or another. Like many situations, get 80% of the benefit from 20% of the cost.

Anything that blocks air flow and stops convection should be effective (says the mechanical engineer).
