This was the first none cane Reed I have purchased. I was pleased with it right out of the “box”.
So much so, I decided to try a competing brand also. Verdict, now that I have a choice, the choice is this Légère Reed.
My son is a clarinetist and was eager to try a Legere reed. He has been using it for the last week and is really happy with the sound and ease of it.
Might be too soft
I been playing guitar for 35 years. Two years ago I wanted to learn an entirely different type of instrument. I decided on the Bb Clarinet because it is made of wood, relatively cheap (I have a used R13 Buffet $2000 and used $80 hard-rubber-flea-market-high-school-band-cast off that was in good shape).
I learned how to maintain and scrape reeds, but decided to try synthetic reeds. I settled on Légère Reeds based on reviews.
I am not an expert but my teacher is. He uses natural reeds, but doesn't see/hear any problems with my choice of Légère.
I am happy with how they sound and perform. But most of all, they give me more time to play music because I don't spend time on maintaining and scraping reeds.
I keep several Vandoren 5RV-lyra 88 mouthpieces loaded so that I can let my reeds rest after and hour of playing.
Very prompt delivery
