Innovative! No reason it wouldn't work. That's not to say its feasible, just technically viable. I'm sure that was a real product but based on the fact that nobody has ever heard of the thing, the sax-playing public must have totally rejected the idea.
Never seen anything like it! There used to be someone on this site who was compiling photos of reeds for an online "Reed Museum" — this one should definitely be there. I'll bet a Rovner or one of those flexible mesh ligs would work well. Or some O-rings.
This also show that in the past there was space for crazy ideas ( although I don’t think this is as crazy as it may seem) which nowadays aren’t around. Makes me also think that in the past there were products which were advocating thrift rather than creating waste.
There were reeds with holes and reeds with grooves so why not this?
