In Trent Kynaston's "The Saxophone Intonation Workbook," he makes several interesting statements I've never heard before:
"You can revive old reeds by boiling them in water for a few minutes."
"After boiling, remove the reeds. The remaining liquid can be served as a nourishing broth, or as a base for light soups or gravies."
Actually, I just made up Statement #2.
I'd like to apologize to Dr. Kynaston and the entire SOTW community for representing Statement #2 as the words of Dr. Kynaston. To my knowledge, he never said them, and indeed, I made them up. Mistakes were made. But I will get to the bottom of this matter, and will take steps to ensure that an error of this nature will never happen again during the course of this one post I'm making right now.
So, anyways.... Oh yeah: has anyone ever actually boiled their old reeds? Did this really "revive" them?There is no Statement #5.
