This reed is bright, has clear intonation, and really helps the Eb sing above the rest of my wind ensemble without sounding screechy. Even just tooting a couple notes with this reed, it was obvious to me that the synthetic material was made for an Eb.
Loved this reed. I played a Broadway show on it the same day I got it. Will order more.
I usually use a Vandoren 3 and tried the European cut in a 3.0 which Legere was kind enough to let me swap for a 3.25. It’s still a bit on the soft side compared to what I’m used to so I’m going to order a 3.5 or 3.75 but the reed responds beautifully and has a great sound. Im an amateur who plays on a fully restored vintage Student Model Vito Efer with a custom Spriggs wood barrel and it plays like a dream with this reed! Love the European Cut for my Bb clarinet as well. This will definitely be my go-to reed for my Eb has well.
Very nice, fixed much of my loud/soft problem. I look forward to using harder European Cut reeds once I get my lip back. (I stopped playing for 2 years.) It's still early days, but so far I prefer European to Classic, on Eb.
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.
