“I have tested synthetic reeds for over 25 years and never found anything that was even close to being able to replace my cane reeds. However, 2 years ago I tried the Légère reeds for the first time and was really impressed with how good the reed felt and played. Then, this year at the Namm show in Los Angeles I tried the newest model of the Légère reed on my tenor sax and was totally knocked out by it. It not only felt good but it played as good as one of my BEST cane reeds. It is really responsive in all registers of the horn and has a warm, rich sound and uniform clarity from the bottom to top of the horn. Best of all, I know it’s going to feel and sound the same every time I play it, I don’t have to break it in and don’t have to worry about my reed drying out and warping while I’m playing one of my other saxophones if I’m playing an outdoor event. In short, this is an amazing reed by any standard and I’m recommending it to every saxophone player I know.” – Rick
