Used a 3.75 Euro Cut with a refaced Vandoren M30 mouthpiece. Response was excellent and had no trouble playing up to altissimo A. Depth (warmth) of tone in primary register was a bit less than with a good cane reed but better than most. Reed is slightly wider than cane reeds, but this did not seem to have an adverse effect.
Glad you are enjoying the reed!
Légère’s Eb clarinet reeds fulfill all my expectations of a Légère reed. It works well, producing a warm sound and evenness of balance. It brings freedom to practice without spending hours working on reeds.
Best Eb reed yet - instant clear response all through the range.
Thank you for the kind review!
I had been fighting with my Eb clarinet, especially in the altissimo register. I tried several mouthpiece, barrel, ligature and reed combinations and as a last ditch effort shortly before a concert, ordered Backun Vocalise mouthpieces and a bunch of Euro legere reeds. I found that the 3.75 Euro worked best on the G mouthpiece, which allowed the altissimo notes to come out clearly and no longer strained. Articulation is easy and I have a good dynamic range. Pretty happy with this purchase.
Thank you for the thoughtful and detailed review! Glad you're enjoying the reeds for all clarinets!
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Eb soprano European Cut clarinet reeds work as well as the Bb clarinet reeds. Almost all of the notes respond well, even the upper register. I am very happy with them.
Thanks for the review!
