 RE: Keep reeds to lengthen lives?

Kal Opperman recommends "curing" reed blanks by aging before making them into reeds. He says the resulting reeds last much longer and play better. His articals appear regularly in "The Clarinet," published by the International Clarinet Association. He authored "The Art of Adjusting and Handmaking Reeds."
