I have used Fibracell for 10 years on my Yani SC901, and while they are far better than cane in so many ways, Legere takes it to the next level. Just enough resistance, warm, fabulous articulation and perfect for those that use a lot of vibrato.
The classics are always my go to, I prefer them to Légère’s other cuts and they never let me down!
The best thing about soprano classical is the fullness and uniformity between the reeds.
I've been using Légère from the very beginning, and it's gratifying to see their products evolve and improve over time. The Soprano Sax Classic is a game changer for sound and handling; for me that translates to better control of dynamics, tone color and pitch. These three aspects have keep Légère as a leader in the field. I look forward to additions to their product line, especially the American Scrape for oboe and The American Cut for Soprano and Baritone Saxophone.
Légère reeds have completely changed how I play. I no longer spend days curing and adjusting reeds that may, or may not, work. No more humidity control. Plus, they tend to last so much longer than traditional reeds, and are so easy to care for. I’ve never bought a “bad” Légère, and the expense is so worth it for the convenience and longevity it provides. Because of the unnaturally-smooth texture, there is a bit of a learning curve to get the “feel” of it. I’ve also found it takes time to have a really “warm” and “round” classical saxophone sound, but it certainly balances itself out after a couple weeks of consistent practice. I would prefer some sort of texture on the vamp of the reed to give it a better “grip”, and the reeds do take a slightly longer to place on a mouthpiece than a traditional reed that seals. I find I have to tighten my ligatures a lot more to keep the reed from moving around, which will most assuredly lessen the life of my ligatures, but I think this is a small price to pay for what these ground-breaking reeds provide.
