“I discovered Légère Reeds about a year ago. It completely changed my approach to playing the saxophone. Finally got exactly the sound of the instrument I wanted, I was looking for. Légère Reeds allow me to achieve any kind of articulation I need, great intonation and dynamics. But above all - Légère Reeds always, in any situation, provide me with the same perfect sound of saxophone. I'm not worried now about my set-up, I do not think about it anymore. I now think only about music, about what I play. It's an amazing comfort...I was looking for this for more than 20 years of playing saxophone... Many thanks Légère Reeds!” – P. Smorąg
