A durable and darker reed with fewer overtones than the Signature. A thicker tip and heart produces a purer tone with fewer complexities. The Classic for Saxophone is the recommended cut for marching band performers and those blending their sound with a large ensemble.

Very Nice!

Smooth sound and great playability. Make sure you order a half strength lower than you're used to though!

Bass Saxophone - Classic Reed

My daughter loves the reeds and the sound produced in the bass sax. Her first synthetic reeds as well.

Thank you for the review!

Great reed for bass sax

Previously I had been using baritone sax reeds on my Thomann (Jinbao) bass saxophone with a Selmer S80 C* bass mouthpiece, and that setup worked fairly well. I recently tried a Legere 2.00 strength bass saxophone reed and the instrument now has so much more soul and resonance, and the common difficulty getting middle D to speak was greatly reduced. Wow what a difference! This Legere bass saxophone reed is the only one I will use from now on!

Thank you for the thoughtful and detailed review, we appreciate your comments!

These synthetic reeds are particularly nice for bass saxophone.

Bass saxophone is a bit of a rare breed, and I'm very glad Legere makes dedicated bass reeds for these larger saxophones. I find that I'm very sensitive to reed particularities on my bass sax, and the combination of a Legere "classic" strength 3 and a classical mouthpiece (Selmer S80 bass) yields a very consistent, even tone and response throughout the entire range of the horn. The low register in particular is satisfyingly resonant and clear, distinguishing itself from a baritone saxophone sound to give a fullness to the low end of the saxophone section.

Thank you for the thoughtful and detailed review, we appreciate your comments!

Truly excellent

I am using these Legere 2.00 strength Bass saxophone reeds on my Selmer Series II Bass saxophone. I am using the Selmer S80 C* bass mouthpiece and JLV ligature. Simply amazing, consistent and better than the cane reeds that I was able to find.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the reed!
