The Légère Bassoon reed is the first synthetic double reed on par with a well-made cane reed. The reed is easy to play and comfortable in the embouchure. It has the consistency, durability and dependability that players demand, while maintaining the warmth and body of cane. It is recommended for Bassoon players of all experience levels.

Legere bassoon reed M

Really enjoying my new reed. Equally responsive in all registers. Pitch is perfect in the low register and able to consistently play soft. Wonderful customer support from Sean. Thank you.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the reed!

Actually plays accurately

I got my bassoon second-hand, and the owner had several (10+) reeds with it. None seemed to work well, and most were at least half a step off of the note I was playing. I'm a new player, so I don't have the skill or knowledge to try and fix these reeds, either with my embouchure or by shaving or whatever else. I use Legere reeds for my saxophone, and they're the best thing ever (way cheaper than cane because they last so much longer while sounding better), so I expect the same from this one. So far so good! It's super easy to use (no soaking or other wonky care needs), and sounds accurate! We'll see on the longevity front, but my saxophone reed lasted almost a year before I even started considering replacing it, so I'm hoping for something similar here!

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

Perfect but scary to handle

Wouldn’t want to drop this! But it’s so consistent! So I have to buy them.

Thanks for the review!

Reeds for chinooks

Living in a place where the weather conditions fluctuate greatly, the stability of these reeds is a life saver. I particularly like the openness of the low range. I find notes above the high “f” are a bit more challenging to control for intonation but I am finding a way.
I wish every beginner could start with these reeds unfortunately my students find the price prohibitive.
I would love to see a significant price drop to make them more available to young students.

Thank you for the thoughtful and kind review, glad you're enjoying the reed!

Try a few of them - it's worth it! ;)

Just received my second bassoon reed from the new 3-axis cutting process. This one is close enough to what I like to make in cane reeds to really convince me that it's worth persisting with trying a few of these before you give up. I won't have to adjust the tip opening on this one. Also, note what I said about "what i LIKE to make in cane reeds" -- as we all know, sometimes we get there and sometimes we don't! So, to find so much of what i'm looking for just there, unchanging and ready to go, is really great!

Thanks for the kind review Peter!
