Due to the great appreciation for Adrian's in another thread, time for some reedcase discussion. As an accessory it must feel somewhat neglected on the forum sometimes so here's you chance to give it some love and make it feel appreciated.

I was given one of these Vandoren cases last Xmas but promptly lost the round disk on the front which I believe renders it useless:

Folks, you don't need to attach image files, in fact it says right there "Not for images". There's an image icon next to the paragraph symbol in the row of icons at the top of the post. Click there and either drag and drop, or, with your new found care in reading instructions, click where it says "or click here" and do a search for the image on local storage.

Ah, mobile, maybe that doesn't work?

why is it useless? you can still store reeds in it, no? just lost the humidity control which I've never been a fan of anyways... most cases don't have one.

Boy do I feel "low tech". :doh: I have been using Rico Reedguards super glued together to hold six numbered reeds for as long as I can remember. Yellow is for "classical" and red is for "jazz". Someone gave the the one on the left as a gift and I have never used it.

if that makes you feel better I'm on the same camp. I have been using the discontinued Vandoren 4 reeds blue cases forever too. when they discontinued it I actually went shop for a few spares to last a lifetime, so much I like it.

Rico case on the left is for Soprano. Vandoren case on the right is for Tenor. I prefer the Rico case because it is easier to open and holds 8 reeds.

Have you tried contacting Vandoren ? Couple quid may get one in your post box.

I guess but how is it any better than the plastic case it comes in or just leaving it on the mouthpiece as I do now? Was hoping the humidity thing would allow me to play the reed straight away

~Thought I did once but probably contacted the wrong people with a very dodgy description of what I was after :) I've used your link to contact customer services and ask them if I can purchase the disk, thanks a lot.
