“When I first encountered Légère reed, I expected it to sound like a cold plastic, possibly ok for school or military bands. When I actually tried it, It was a complete shock to me. It creates a very focused and warm sound. I have been playing on Légère for less than a month and I can’t, now, live without Légère, allowing me to spend more time on practice and music making. I do thank Légère for setting me free from a painful process of selecting one good reed out of hundreds.”
