is it bad if lipstick gets on a reed for a saxophone?
Finally!!! I found some bandos!!! But i guess it's ok. I really don't know cause I play percussion/drums
if it does not come off....then yes if it does you are fine....I think
no, just wipe it off.
Yes,lipstick which has oil decreases the reed's ability to absorb water. This along with saliva can trap and increase bacterial and mold growth. You need to run water through the reed before storing and let it air..
I guess lipstick can affect its tone.
