Re: Making reeds better
I've got a few neat gadgets I like to use on reeds when I have some spare time. I have this cast iron reed blade that shaves it really fine to get it where you want it, and Vandoren has a new thing out like that for about 30 dollars that is wonderful. Also, I have a clipper, so if I get a chip, just take off a millimeter of two, and it's back to new.
As far as storing reeds, I have the box where there is a panel of glass that press down on the reed, it never comes out wavy. Also, watch the humidity levels at which you store them.
