Topic: Reed Case Hunt
I have a student who is interested in finding a reed case like my own. I purchased the 6 reed case in the 90's and for the life of me cannot remember the brand name. Other than a B marked on the inside of the case, there is no brand marking on it. Could you help me?
The case is wood, probably maple, and has a medium varnish on it. On each side there are 2 decent size airholes. The reeds are held in with mandrels, what look to be brass, and lay against a strip of cork on each side. The inside of the case is lined with a red-colored lining. And the case has a small folder-over latch.
I thought it might be a Wiseman reed case, but I do not see any of their cases that look like this one.
Does this ring a bell with anyone? If so, I would really appreciate your help!
