Topic: reeds shipped in plastic tubes
I've seen some reedmakers ship their reeds in small, clear, plastic tubes. Not the clear, plastic, cylindrical cases that machine-made reeds are often sold in. Instead, these appear to be 3" sections cut from larger lengths of tubing, with the reeds usually affixed to the inside by paperclip. I'd e-mail the reedmakers directly, but I don't remember specifically whose reeds I've seen shipped like this. It's been a few years. Does anyone order reeds and receive them in these plastic tubes? Or does anyone happen to know what type of tubing is used?
