Juno reeds are specially made for student performance from select cane grown on the Mediterranean coast. When we turn that cane into reeds, we give them a special cut that’s extra responsive for students, so you can improve faster.
Once the reeds are precisely cut, each one is sealed in its own humidity balanced Flow Pack where it waits just for you. That way, when you take a Juno reed out of the box, it feels and sounds as fresh as the day it was made.
Reed Rotation and Care Great players change their reeds each time they play (they call it “rotating” them). Then, they carefully store them in a protective case to keep them in perfect shape. That way, each reed will sound better and last longer. Try it yourself, and you’ll notice the difference, too!
Using the Reed Protector Keep your reeds in playing shape. Just insert your reed into the protector, and it will be safe until the next time you’re ready to play.
It’s easy to find a Juno reed that feels good to you – and makes you sound good too. If your’re just starting out, you may want to choose a 1 1/2 strength reed that’s more flexible and easier to play. As you get better, you may find that a stronger 3 strength reed gives you a heavier, fuller sound.
