Reeds – you’ve got to have them on your sax, or it doesn’t make a sound!

ReedJuvinate Review

Here is my review of the ReedJuvinate reed holder

I became aware of the Reedjuvinate via one of my students who came in and emptied Listerine on my studio floor!

What interested me the most about the ReedJuvinate was its claim to keep reeds clean AND in a controlled, humidified state.  I’ve been using the ReedJuvinate for a few weeks now and I am very pleased with the results.  My reeds are playing better and holding a consistency which is allowing me to keep my three favourite D’Addario Select Jazz Reeds playing for longer!
