Why is Boveda Good for Reeds?
Storing reeds properly at a consistent humidity level is one of the most important things you can do as a woodwind player. Using Boveda in a reed case extends the life of reeds. Watch this video to learn how to use Boveda to protect woodwind reeds.
HOW TO USE:
- Insert the unwrapped Boveda 84% into a pocket or available open area inside your reed case. (Make your Boveda last 2.5 times longer with a Boveda Mini Fabric Holder, which is available separately here.)
- Close the lid, so Boveda can add or absorb moisture as needed to balance humidity in the reed case.
- Mix different Boveda RH levels within the same reed case
- Use Boveda in the same case with other humidification products because they will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda
HOW MANY BOVEDA TO USE:
Use one (1) Boveda Size 8 with up to eight (8) woodwind reeds in a reed case or with a reed storage humidification system.
A Boveda 10-Pack is packaged in a resealable high-barrier heavy-duty plastic bag with a zip closure. Each Boveda is not individually overwrapped.
