Reed Requirements

All woodwind players are required to have at least 3 playable reeds at all times. You must have your own reeds and are not permitted to share them with others. Brand and size are a player preference. Reeds must be stored carefully in a case that allows them to dry, protects them from chipping and doesn't expose them to excessive heat or cold. A reed case is recommended.
