About Reeds Direct and Woodwind & Reed. Over 35 years of service.

Woodwind and Reed was started in 1981 as a repair and making shop in Cambridge. In 1998 we launched the Reeds Direct website to serve the needs of clarinet and saxophone players everywhere. We have gained a reputation for first class service around the world.
The concept of having a specialist store just for reeds came to us when considering how to offer the best possible service to single reed players within the confines of our parent company Woodwind & Reed.

In 2016 we decided that we should offer our customers a dedicated place to discover and purchase the full spectrum of Vandoren products, from mouthpieces to slings. This site is Vanbleu.

By employing a team dedicated to sending all orders on the day they arrive, we have earned a reputation second to none for reliability and speed. We are able to send over 99% of all orders on the same day by having a program of continual investment in people, stock and infrastructure. We use the best practice approach for our relationship with suppliers, staff and service providers. We use first class services like Royal Mail for our first class post as standard; premium quality packaging and labelling material and high-quality network infrastructure, all of which benefits our customers - which we hope is you.

To all of you, from all of us at Reeds Direct - Thank you and Happy eCommerce!
