Legere alto sax review

Needing softer reeds becaause of decreasing lung function i found that cane reeds were rapidly becoming unplayable due to excessive softening . I am now using legere which was a significant improvement.There is a problem with their grading strength system which can be inaccurate:usually the reed may be harder than graded.

Love these reeds. Reliably good. Much more durable than I expected. Mine last 6-9 months.

I really love legere on all my saxes. Just got some 1.5 American cut for alto. Easy to start easy to play no muss no fuss they always play the same dry moist cold hot. Great tone. Thanks legere

Beautiful tone, easy to play for new sax player

Being a new sax player of only about 6 months, I switched to Legere synthetic reeds after several months of cane reeds... I found that they made my alto sax much easier to play. I use the 1.75 size American Cut reed, and I find it gives the sax tone a pleasing sound that is colorful, yet extremely smooth. I have my Legere American Cut Alto reed on my desk at all times (since i'm prone to losing things!) .
