To the master reedmakers at Vandoren Whilst Vandoren reeds are often considered the superior choice of musicians worldwide, the change to barrier packaging has not been welcomed with open arms. We musicians find that the new style packaging has brought with it reeds that do not last as long as they did. We also believe that the amount of packaging is needless and has the opposite effect in these days of an enrivronmentally-friendly outlook. We also find that the increase in size of the boxes prevents us from carrying them as easily in our instrument cases. We respectfully request that you revert to the old style packaging.
