Make sure your woodwind reeds are ready when you are. With a Boveda 2-way humidity control pack in the case, a reed keeps its shape to maintain that airtight seal to your instrument's mouthpiece for better tone.

84% is for:

  • Dampening reeds for rehearsals and performances
  • Clarinets, saxophones, oboes, bassoons, contrabassoons and English horns
  • Maintaining a consistent humidity level to prevent the cane from warping
  • Eliminating the hassle of storing reeds with a wet sponge, in a glass of water or in your mouth

The 2-Pack is for:

  • One (1) reed case—one pack to use now plus a replacement
  • Use in a non-airtight reed case or reed container (not included)

NOTE: Not for use with cigars—use Size 60 Boveda 84% RH for humidor seasoning.



  1. Remove Boveda's plastic wrapper. (Do not open the Boveda itself.)
  2. Insert the unwrapped Boveda 84% into a pocket or available open area of the reed case.  

Do not mix different Boveda RH levels within the same reed case. And do not use Boveda in the same case with other humidification products because they will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of Boveda. 

Use one (1) Boveda Size 8 with up to eight (8) woodwind reeds in a reed case or with a reed storage humidification system.

Each Boveda is individually overwrapped. 

In a reed case: Boveda will last 60 days depending on the time of year, your climate and the reed case.
Unopened package: Up to two (2) years

Do the touch test. Order replacement packs BEFORE Boveda is totally rigid to avoid a lapse in humidity protection for your reeds.
Boveda is still working if you feel: • Hardening at its corners • Soft spots among some hard areas
Boveda is expired if: • The entire pack feels rock solid all the way through. 

Achieves and maintains a constant relative humidity (RH) range between 80% and 85%.

Food-grade salt, purified water and a food-grade thickening agent sealed inside a leakproof membrane.

Size 8: 2.75"/7 cm x 2.5"/6.35 cm
