The Hodge double-reed reed cases hold the reeds with a high quality foam reed holder. The reeds sit in slots that are just the right size to grip the reed thread and hold them in. In addition, a foam strip is seated on the lid and comes down over the open slots when the case is closed. The oboe reed cases and saxophone/clarinet reed cases are made of sturdy plastic that is resistant to breaking even when abused. The bassoon reed case is made of leatherette covered metal.
This attractive jewelry-style black leatherette case fits easily into any bassoon case. It has a spring hinge that snaps open and shut.
