Old King Log
Whilst setting my boy up with a clarinet,I made the discovery that the traditional reed guards offered by Vandorne seem to have disappeared from the market? Did I miss out on something here?

Y'know, I took a look at the Selmer reed case (just linked for pic; prices are cheaper elsewhere) and thought, "It's not going to put even pressure on the entire reed, particularly the tip, so why even bother?" If I was to re-invent the Reedgard, I'd probably put soft rubber or something similar on the end that clamps to the reed's tip.Remember the Selmer reed cases? Leather covered with a piece of plexiglass (or real glass) inside? They are still sold...at an exorbitant price...yet, there is a fellow who sells Chinese copied for $12. I have a couple....they beat out the "new" plastic and cheap reed guards.
