I don’t really have much else to say but the title. I’ve been playing on some sort of Légère reed for almost half a year now and I’ve only bought two and I still sound decent (but that’s not the reed’s fault) so I can’t really complain at all and would recommend anyone get one
I’m old enough to member the prototypes of “plastic” reeds - didn’t like ‘em much. Then, a few years ago, one of my students suggested I try one again. Now, I’m hooked!! The consistency of the Legere reeds is amazing. In the past you’d line up the top four reeds in order from a box of 10. Now, every Legere reed is my #1 reed! No more sanding &/or clipping. Whether it's Dixieland or Classical music, I just put on my European Cut 3.75 and play away! I love it!!
Perfect combination of strength and responsiveness, plus the convenience of consistency and longevity. No more reed issues or wasted reeds. Best of all worlds.
Great response and full sound. Blends well in a big band!
Very nice tone on my sax. A little stiffer than the stated strength for me. However will be playing it a lot.
