Boveda for Woodwind Reeds
How Boveda Works for Reed Storage
Boveda's patented 2-way humidity control add or removes moisture to maintain a specific RH (relative humidity). This means you're forever done with splits, cracks and warping. And because Boveda is activation and maintenance free, you spend more time enjoying your craft without fussing with the mess, hassle and mixed results of sponges.
Boveda is available in a range of humidity levels to suit your personal preference: 32%, 72% and 84% RH. The higher the RH, the less wetting required. All you need to do is use Boveda in an air-tight reed case for about 60 days of worry-free storage perfection.
When the entire Boveda begins to lose its softness, it's time for a replacement.
*Do not mix different Boveda RH levels within the same container, and do not use Boveda in the same container with other humidification products. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda.
One might expect that if you use a high RH Boveda in the same container as a lower RH Boveda that you'll achieve an environment somewhere in the middle. That is not the case, instead the moisture just transfers back and forth between the Bovedas.
