Unlike other reviews here I would like to say that, having tried most of the other major brand suppliers, this "system" (the case in conjunction with the vitalizers)has been, by far, the best at storing reeds, and most importantly, maintaining reeds and extending reed life, that I have ever come across. I've played professionally for over 45 years, and the difference between the way my reeds used to respond after storing them in a reed case after multiple uses, and the way they respond now with this "system" just amazes me. I also now use the vitalizer pouches before and during the "break-in period" with all my reeds. A great product that I wish was around years ago.
Great product. Very stylish reed case, and gets the job done. However, the surface on which the reed is held against actually isnt flat; it is a ridged surface. Every once in a while, you'll get a reed that will adhere to this surface. The product: a wavy reed. However, I have found that letting the reed dry a little bit before placing it into the case will nullify this problem. Overall, I like this product very much.
This is a great, cheap, and sturdy reed case. I have purchased three to date, two for my alto reeds and one for my bari reeds. The one problem is that bari reeds tend to be a very tight fit. Vandoren reeds fit, but Rico Reserves are a very tight fit. At one point, upon closing the case, I must have accidentally pushed my bari reeds in a bit too far and the back hinge crushed the tips of three of my best reeds. That being said, I think that this case works great if you make sure not to push them in too far. Tenor reeds or smaller will have no problem fitting into this case and I wouldn't recommend any other reed case for alto sax players.
At first, I found this to be very good for clarinet reeds. It held all my reeds, and I was spending less money on reeds. Some problems annoyed me though, like if I wanted to put Vandoren reeds, they would too thick sometimes to stick in it. Then the little thing on the front that says Rico on it fell off. It is just glued on there.Then I dropped, being the clumsy self that I am, and the part that holds the reeds fell out. I still use for organisation though. For organizing it is great, but if you are a marcher and clumsy, I would suggest a sturdier case. The reed vializer part of it, is not useful whatsoever. A good case, but too pricey for how fragile it is. If you take private lessons, and do not march, it will be an ok case.
I was skeptical of this product, but I needed to spend at least another $15 to get free shipping on my order. WOW, did I luck out!
Where to begin? It's actually like it pays me to use it. The most obvious reason is that my reeds last a lot longer being stored in the Vitalizer. They stay flat and don't get split like they can if left on the mouthpiece or kept in a cardboard reed holder.
Add to that how enjoyable it is to be able to put a reed on and play it virtually right out of the box. I've never been able to do that before. Storing my reeds in this case cuts my warmup time in half or less. (Well, my horns and I still need to warm-up, but my reeds need much less).
But, here is the biggest reason I say it's like being paid to use the Vitalizer: I used to go through a new box of reeds and throw at least half of them out. But, by using the Vitalizer during the tryout and break-in process, I always end up being able to use a significantly higher number of reeds from each box. After the first go-around, I keep all the reeds I tried in the case. The result is, next time around, they are somewhat closer to being ready when I first put them on. After the third try, I can find redeeming qualities to like about almost every reed.
So, reeds last longer, get prepared quicker, more of them end up being playable, and it's just good to know you can count on all of that, every time. Get one of these for every horn you have, it's even better than if they were free!
