    1. Hey, I'm sorry to hear about your experience. I don't have a lot of experience with synthetic reeds, just enough to know that I prefer cane. However, I don't think this is the proper place to vent. If you'd like to create a guest post review of synthetic reeds with some recordings that could be really cool though. Let me know what you think.

  2. Good morning, could someone help me? some time ago I bought a very old sax, the box and the sax itself, they are causing me a lot of respiratory allergies. I imagine they are mites, but I do not know if it is possible. how could i fix it? will I have to wash it? the box will surely have to remove it. I am in Brazil. the sun didn't help. I hope you can help me, a big hug.

    1. Honestly, I'd just send it to a instrument repair person and get it cleaned. Toss the case and grab a new one. Good luck!
