Pavel Ocampo Joins the Légère Family!
"Curiosity took me to Légère reeds. I ordered some, at first, my expectation were set low, but once I had the chance to try them I was shocked. They worked and they worked amazingly well. I knew immediately that they were gonna be my reeds from then on, great sound, no complications, no worries. Just right to enjoy my playing." - Pavel Ocampo
