Mouthpiece Pouches

The Blue Suede pouch is a navy blue pouch intended to protect mouthpieces, caps, or ligatures. 


The P200 holds Bb, Ebb, and alto clarinet or alto and soprano saxophone mouthpieces.

The P201 holds bass clarinet, tenor, or baritone saxophone mouthpieces. 


Reed Resurfacer

The reed resurfacer is made of a washable tempered glass and features an etched surface that is nearly impossible to wear out. The reed stick, inspired by reed rush, is also made of etched glass and enables players to precisely customize and personalize their reeds. Both the surfacer and stick come together, but you can also purchase the reed stick by itself.


Mouthpiece Patch

The mouthpiece cushions protect the mouthpiece from teethmarks, offering a firm grip on your mouthpiece (comes in a pack of 6).


Reed Trimmers

The Vandoren reed trimmer repairs damaged tips and increases the strength of your reeds with ease. Adjustable a precise, it utilizes the same blades we use in our factory to create a consistent, clean cut every time. Now damaged reeds can perform like new again.
