This Legere reed plays very well on a Richard Hawkins Zinner blank mouthpiece,
seemingly even better than my older reeds of the same type. I am playing it this coming week in concert at Eastman School.
I’d been using Bb reeds and a Backun cutout barrel on my Eb clarinet to avoid reed switches but I like the European Cut 3.75 Eb reed enough to buy more. It has the heft needed to get the high notes in tune.
I'm blown away by how effective this is. It sounds and feels like cane, and has gotten me comfortably through a few Broadway shows.
So happy I decided to try the Eb Soprano Clarinet European Cut. It is very responsive and supports the notes above the staff too. I love that it responds even after being pegged - very important for Eb playing.
The new European Cut for Eb are excellent.
