By storing reeds in a humidity controlled environment, without any portion of the reed resting on a flat surface, woodwind players can expect to notice a substantial improvement in the consistency and longevity of their reeds. Cane reeds stored at a stable temperature and humidity will be quicker to warm up, less likely to warp, and more stable in strength over the life of the reed. For players travelling between various climates with their reeds, or for players rotating a large number of reeds, these cases are a lifesaver!

Local Bassoon extraordinaire and skilled woodworker Matthew Holzinger builds these cases in conjunction with his father, an engineer, using a combination of state-of-the-art CNC manufacture and good old fashioned hand craftsmanship. They utilise beautiful Australian timbers, including Tasmanian Blackwood, Jarrah and Redgum, as well as premium cigar humidor parts, to create an exceptionally stable environment for storing all manner of reeds. These cases were developed in conjunction with Dean Newcombe, principal clarinet of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, who needed a top-quality solution for the storage of his many clarinet reeds.
