 Recommendations for humidified reed case that holds 10 reeds
Author: moolatte

Why do the major reed manufacturers like Vandoren and Rico sell 5 or 10 reeds in a box, but their (humidified) reed case solutions they also sell only hold a number that doesn't cleanly divide into the amount that comes in a box?

For example, the D'addario humidified reed case (formerly made by Rico) holds 8 reeds, and many of the Vandoren reed cases I see on Amazon only hold 4/6/8 reeds at once.

Why? What convenience or advantage does not being able to have all your new reeds in a rotation provide?

To that, does anyone have any other suggestions for a good humidified reed case where I can just dump all 10 reeds from a new box? There are the felt cases with a glass back, but they don't seem to be able to fit a humidifier pack inside. I found something like


but it appears to have problems with the reed grips digging into the reeds. I currently use the D'addario/Rico humidified reed case which uses plastic bands to hold the reeds in place.
