Rico Reed Vitalizer KitThe RicoReed Vitalizer Kit offers maintenance-free reed storage. Kit includes a sealable storage bag with one Humidipak. The patented Humidipak technology uses 2-way humidity control to keep your reed tips flat and prevent cracking and warping. Available in 3 humidity levels: 73% for everyday use, 58" for longer storage, and 84% for keeping reeds well moistened. Reed Vitalizer control packs will last 45-60 days. When the pack becomes hard, discard and replace with a refill pack.

Don't get me wrong: I love the idea of the reed vitalizer, but if Rico wants to make a bag weaker than your average ziploc, then there's going to be a problem. When I first opened up the bag and broke the seal, the white plastic closure snapped in two. I duct taped the two halves together and successfully used the bag for a few days. But after the third day, a large slit had already formed near the top of the bag. I was angry. I then got a ziploc bag with a slide closure and reinforced it with heavy duty duct tape. I put all my reeds in and have been using it happily ever since. The vitalizer packs work wonders for reed consistency and stability!
So in short: just buy the individual humidity packs and reinforce a ziploc bag with duct tape. It was a great idea, but very poorly executed by Rico.
I used this over the winter, and I really think it helps stabilize my reeds. I used the two higher humidity levels, and both worked for me with no mold problems. I experimented using the packets in other containers as well. The packets will break down if you put them in regular freezer bags. Works ok in the newer Vandoren reed case, but not as well as in the Reedvitalizer bag.
Unfortunately, I managed to rip open my Reedvitalizer bag, so I am having to buy a new one. I wish the bags were sturdier and came in different sizes.
Georgia summers can have brutal humidity, but the Rico reed vitalizer kit saved me the cost of constantly buying new reeds as my old reeds died or the need to purchase sea-salt, bags, tuperware and all the rest of the old-fashion solution. This product does a great job of keeping your reeds in prime playing condition long after their open-air counterparts have died.
I must, however, end with the cautionary note that for those who have tight spaces in their small cases, you'll end up buying a new kit every couple of seasons. Sadly, the ziplock-esque bag they give you is easy to tear holes into, and if you fold and shove it into your case enough times something will find that weak-spot and tear your baggy a new one.
The concept holds true and the product works. Just be careful.
I've been playing for a living for over forty years and this reed-care product has, by far, been a game-changer with regard to the number of playable reeds per box that I have ever encountered. I'm SUPER picky about the reeds I use in performance, and have always spent hours upon hours breaking-in and adjusting my reeds before they ever get to the stage(usually 1-2 weeks). And even with that, I would usually only get 5-8 reeds per box on tenor(LaVoz). I've had my first vitalizer kit for about two weeks now and I'm floored by the difference this system makes in the day to day characteristics of my reeds. I still break them in, in the same way I always have. But for the first time in memory, I have 10 out of 10 reeds from the same box that all play magnificently, and are ready for performance! Since I like to break-in a box of reeds at once, I'm using the 58% pack. That seems to give just enough moisture to keep my reeds from "changing" and warping. All I have to do is pull one out, wet it in my mouth for a few seconds(no water!), and play! I used to use water all the time and continually had mold problems. In the last year I've stopped using water and only use my saliva. No more mold! I've already ordered kits for alto, bari, and clarinet. This is one of the greatest tools for reed players that I've ever seen. Get it today!
Using the 73% model for about 6 weeks and it is a time saver. I play every day and the reeds are almost ready to be used and only require little wetting. I've had no problems with mold!
I recommend this product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will save you time. Oh yea, the clear package makes it easy to find the particular reed you want to use.
