I love the flexibility in the Studio Cut reeds so much that I have bought extras so I can have my students can give them a try. The consistency in the reeds have let my students spend more time playing then fighting a cane reed.
If you haven't tried the Studio Cut reed yet give a try.
I have purchased Legere Studio and American Reeds and since I double on Alto,Tenor and Soprano, my reeds are ready to play as I change horns several times. during gigs. I enjoy the tone and projection. I recommend these reeds to other Saxophonists.
I am in my 60s and I have played clarinet and sax for many decades. I finally decided to try the synthetic reed by Legere. The strength chart was accurate to convert my 3.0 green java to a 3.0 Legere Studio Cut for Tenor sax. I was amazed by the quality and consistency. A slightly different feel in the mouth, but that is easily forgotten. No soaking or even wetting the reed. Just put on the mouthpiece dry. Playing is effortless. Sound is excellent. I will be trying some of the other cuts to see what other treasures there may be. Will try for Alto Sax and Clarinet also. Thanks Legere!!
Glad you are enjoying the reed!
While I like the warm sound of cane reeds, these come very close. What I like best is that they are ready to play right out of the package, unlike some of my "heirloom" reeds that I spent so much time cultivating.
Glad you're enjoying the reed, thanks for the review!
Blow with the greatest of ease
Thank you for the review!
