Introducing the French Cut, by Légère. A refined, symphonic reed that gives players a richness and stability in tone, without any sacrifice to response. With a profile that has been completely reimagined, the French Cut has been designed for a dark, centered tone that allows for a deep range of emotional expression. The reed is responsive but even, with the perfect amount of resistance.

French Cut Reeds

I purchased the French Cut Reed for my alto sax. I play on a Selmer C** mouthpiece and I ordered a 3.5 strength reed. I found the sound to be darker than the Signature reed. There is also much more resistance. I was working very hard and I felt my tone was stuffy. I requested to swap out the 3.5 for a 3.25 strength. Legere was very accommodating and I received my new reed within a week. The 3.25 was a little easier to play but I still felt my tone was stuffy. The response was slow especially when tonguing. I still like the Signature reeds but I wish the 3.25 had a little more resistance. As a side note, I gave my French Cut reeds to friend who plays on a Caravan mouthpiece and he loved them. They are not a bad reed but as an "older" saxophonist I just don't want to work so hard to get a good sound.

This Reed was purchased for my son. He loves how great the tone is with no resistance. Very nice Reed! Well done 👏 Thanks 👍

American Cut Alto Reed

I have been using Légère tenor and alto reeds for a few years and they work great for me. Every now and then I put a cane reed on my mouthpiece to compare and the cane just doesn't vibrate like the Légère reeds. I highly recommend the Légère reeds.

Great alto reed

This is the best reed I have ever used. The tone and intonation is super and I do not have to waste time to get it moistened up.

Cane is a Waste of Time

I was honestly happy with signature but boy I love the French Cut. Consistent, dark, beautiful. It is amazing to get the exact tone you want every time and never give a thought to humidity, warping, etc. Highly recommend, if you haven't tried Legeres in the past 5 years, you are due for an update.

Thanks for the kind review!
