Reeds last hundreds of hours they should be good.Do a visual inspection if they look good your good to go.

The old motor that blew out #3 left the reeds looking a lot dirty, oily, burnt, but not really kinda look, if that makes sense.
They are still in good physical shape, can I just clean them up ( using what ? ) and will they still be good to re-use you think?
From what I can tell the other 2 are good to go!
Heres a cpl pics to help...

Cant tell by the pic but if theres deposits on the reeds and reed stops thats not good.You would need to clean them.Im sure you can find one in the classifieds if you wanted to get a used one.

I have some stock reeds for free if needed. They will cost ya a Starbucks & Shipping for my time =0)

so in other words - $56.40 for the starbux and $2.00 in shipping - WOW something aint right ! LOL
Seriously, how much - If I can afford anything else right now, I'll take them if I do end up needing them for sure!
