When switching between classical and Jazz/Broadway on soprano saxophone, I like to use the same mouthpiece and simply change out reeds. 3.25 Signature (classical) and 3.25 American (jazz/broadway) are perfect for this exact switch every time!
Thank you for your review!
I am quite pleased with the American Cut reed for my soprano sax. Intonation, which is usually a concern with this instrument, is really good. The reed speaks and responds evenly from th top to the bottom of the horn. Impressive!!
Glad you're enjoying your reed!
I’ve been using Legere reeds for some time now and I am convinced they’re better than cane or other synthetics. They sound like cane but without all the work, play straight from the pack and don’t dry out between sets or while playing other instruments. While it takes a while, at least for me find the perfect strength, once you do the rest is easy just reorder the style and strength and your good to go
Thanks for the kind review!
These reeds have great projection and make the notes play very easily from the lower registers to higher. I use these reeds on all my saxophones when I perform with wearecgb.com (The Collective Groove Band).
Thank you for the review!
Years ago I tried a 3 strength Legere reed and it just didn’t play well or sound good. A few months ago a colleague told me about the American cut reeds with more strengths. I tried 2.75 but could barely play it. Still, I thought I would try one more time. The 2.5 hit the sweet spot.
I’m a trumpet player. When I play soprano, it’s after awhile on trumpet and I don’t have time to wet the reed. The Legere resolves that; I can pick up the sax and just play.
The good news is discovering I also had a nice tone, and it works in both high and low registers. It’s not quite as warm as my VanDoren wooden reeds, but for the convenience, I’ll take it. Very happy with my purchase, and I’ve ordered spares.
Thank you for the thoughtful and detailed review!
