This is a subject I’m always interest in – the moisture on the reeds problem. I have made longer mouthpieces, but I don’t like being too far from the reeds. I’ve also tried passing the air through silica gel chambers before the reeds, but it takes away from the expression.

The Sheng has a chamber which is filled with hot water to keep the instrument warm. It’s so simple, it’s probably the way forward, perhaps with a slightly longer mouthpiece with a U bend
