Thread: looking for a mouthpiece pouch..

  1. Question looking for a mouthpiece pouch..

    I was recently using denis wick's leather case, and the mouthpiece was discolored quickly.
    Does anyone know about a company that makes pouches that block air well?

    I'm not sure you want to seal air - a little circulation might be more healthy for you and the mouthpiece.

    The problem you are having is probably a reaction to the tanning agents in leather. I would suggest the case I use, which is sturdy, inexpensive, and won't cause tarnish:

    I never knew that letting air flow a little is better than sealing.
    I'll check the Protec pouch from the link. Thank you sir!

  4. I definitely do NOT recommend using leather for a mouthpiece pouch, and am amazed that denis wick is making one. The chemicals used to tan leather react quite readily with a lot of metals. I use pro-tec cases for most of my mouthpieces, and they stay shiny for quite some time.

    Definitely agree. I've been using nylon type mouthpiece protectors for years.
