Comments about Leblanc Reed Rush:

Reed quality and consistency has been getting worse over the past few years, in most brands. Especially, I have noticed "over thickness" in the left and right edges, as if the reed cutting machines need to be sharpened?! Every player should use REED RUSH to shave down these left and right edges back to where they belong - - a smooth tapered arc. If you have never used REED RUSH, practice on a few reeds you are about to discard. Hold the RUSH gently in one hand, while holding the reed, Lip-side up, in the other hand, protecting the front edge of the reed with a gentle finger. As you scrape back and forth, or in a circular motion, take care not to destroy the front edge of your reed. If you do not see tiny residue "dust" forming, you may need to apply more pressure. Learning where to scrape the reed, and how much, is well described in LARRY TEAL'S BOOK - THE ART OF SAXOPHONE PLAYING, 100% applicable to CLARINETS as well.

      Comments about Leblanc Reed Rush:

      Good reed rush. I don't use it all of the time however. Just once in awhile. Use wet instead of dry, and also rub lightly over the cane. The only disappointment with the order is that I ordered two and the latch on one of the plastic cases was broken. No big deal, but I'd thought I'd mention it.

      Comments about Leblanc Reed Rush:

      Reed Rush is a superior product when it comes to "Filing" a stiff reed. The trick is to make sure the reed is sufficiently moistened and use the reed rush in one direction only. Never take too much of the reed at a time, be patient and slowly file the reed until you reach the desired softness.

        Essential to every reed player

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Leblanc Reed Rush:

        If you use reeds, you need this product. Every time you buy a new reed, there's that "break-in" period where the reed sounds not so good. Reed Rush acts like a kind of sand paper smoothing out the uneven parts of the reed. When used properly it makes even the cheapest of reeds sound their best.
