Old Chiron Vibrator, Handmade Reeds w-Original Package
This is an assortment of old, cane reeds from the 1950’s, I believe. It appears the box was originally for Alto Saxophone Reeds but that has been scratched out and written in pen is B-flat - Clarinet Reed - Tenor. Since I am not a musician I don’t know what these reeds actually are but I will give as much information as I can. All of the reeds are stamped. Chiron Vibrator - Hand Made - France. They are also marked either - Patented U.S. or Reg. U.S.A..
10 reeds are approximately 5/8” wide. Of the ten, four are stamped 3 ½ and four are stamped 4 and two are undistinguishable.
12 reed are between 7/16” and ½” wide. Of the twelve they all appear to be stamped 3 ½.
According to the chart on the front of the box 3 ½ would be considered Medium and 4 would be Stiff Medium.
All of the reeds appear to be in unused condition and most appear to be in good condition with minimal wear. I have shown a close-up of the thin edge that shows the worst ones.
These are being sold as a package, not separately or individually.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
