I wanted to take a moment to share my favorite resource for reeds and woodwind accessories! Discount Reed Company is a family-owned business that has been serving clarinet and saxophone players since 1980, and was the first and original mail order/internet reed retailer in the United States. The prices are significantly discounted compared to many of the leading retailers, and they provide the individual attention and care that is often lost in our modern e-commerce marketplace.
The website, with an updated and easy-to-use shopping cart, can be found here.
In a culture that is increasingly dominated by “big business”, chain operations, and capitalist business models, it is important to support our local organizations and companies.
