Vintage Clarinet Reeds #1
So I was just gifted some amazing 'vintage' Vandoren clarinet reeds by another one of my wonderful mentors and friends, Arthur Acheson... The earliest reeds (unplayed) date back 50 years to 1966. The others are (I'm estimating) early 1980's and early 2000's.
My flabber is well and truly ghasted and I'm going to post some more blogs on these as and when I can - but in the meantime, here's me embarrassing myself trying to open one of the boxes!

They may have made the packaging economical but not 'easy open'.

I would argue that these plastic boxes are both recyclable and very secure! The reeds certainly didn't seem to be very much worse for wear given their age.. Is all the additional packaging we have these days really necessary? Hmmmm.
