I am now carrying this excellent reed case to rehearsals and concerts of a couple of orchestras in London as well as to chamber music engagements. It is both elegant and practical and not too heavy. It is nice to have a choice of 12 reeds. I shall be very interested to see how it wears. The only weak point may be the leather hinge which holds the two parts of the case together. In a similar 6-reed case I used for maybe 20 years this finally broke down. If the present case lasts as long as that I shall be well
satisfied. As far as I can see this is a very good product at a reasonable price.
