Topic: Reed Cases: Make Your Own
I am one of the few people who are sensible enough to not pay $80 on a 10 Bassoon Reed Case when I can make a 30 reed case for $7 that looks almost as good (I'm pretty handy and crafty). Even if it did look like crap they definitely do the same or BETTER job because I can customize them down to even the cane brand I use!
To my real question:
Does anyone know where I can get a type of holder? Like mandrel, ribbon style holder, etc. for my reed cases? I know reed n'stuff sells them but seriously guys $19 for 54 ribbon style holders. Ribbon style holders are made of packing material. Go to the post office and they'll be happy for you to take them. Only problem is getting them into shape. So honestly I don't care about the type of holder, I just need to know where I can buy them. Also does anyone know where I can get a case 'clip lock'. I am referring to when you close the case it locks in place and you press the little buttonish thing and it unlocks. I need a convenient way to open and close my cases (doesn't need to be a clip lock, all ideas are welcome)
