Bambú’s Wooden Reed Cases are 100% handmade with premium quality wood. They have been specially designed to guarantee optimum care of reeds. Their practical and original slide system with neodymium magnets ensures secure closure. Wood is a porous material and allows the essential air circulation in order to accumulate only the necessary amount of moisture, helping thus to extend the lifespan of reeds. Solid lumber which has been air-dried for at least two years is used for this purpose. The interiors are made of high-impact plastic injection and have been designed to store and protect reeds preventing any kind of physical alteration.
The wooden exteriors are manufactured by the artist Carlos Lebaggi: “It is my intention to work these reed cases in the same way as when a violin or a guitar is made. All the processes are done manually. The materials and tools used for their confection are the same as the ones used to make musical instruments.”
These gorgeous reed cases are available in “plain” and “Striped” designs for clarinet in capacities of 6, 8, and 10 reeds, and for bass clarinet in 8 reed capacity.
Sax players please note that the 6 and 10 reed clarinet case also fits alto sax reeds, the 8 reed clarinet case also fits soprano sax reeds, and the 8 reed bass case also fits tenor and Bari sax reeds.
