Légère BETA Testing Project

What is the BETA Testing Project?

Thank you for your interest in the Légère BETA Testing Project; an initiative to involve hobbyist musicians in the development of mainstream and obscure synthetic reeds.

Players submit their musical background profiles that will allow Légère to find players that can test reed prototypes quickly and thoroughly. Players involved in the testing process will be given first access to Légère prototypes and will be expected to provide thorough feedback on the new reeds.

You do not need to be an elite player to particpate! Players chosen to participate in the project will range from Beginner to Advanced skill levels from a diverse range of genres. Testers will be given reeds at any or all stages of the development process: Concept stage, Design stage, and/or Final stage.

Why Test?

We believe in woodwind music and we believe all reed players deserve access to quality synthetic reeds. Developing new reeds is a time consuming and labor-intensive process. By engaging in this project, we aim to speed up the release of new products while simultaneously giving players early access to highly anticipated reeds.

Thank you.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of this project. We are excited and motivated to create the first synthetic reeds for many obscure instruments and also as we improve reeds for mainstream instruments.

“Légère Reeds are extremely dependable, durable, and produce a wonderful tone color. Our students enjoy the consistency of the reeds and how easy they are to maintain. We switched our entire clarinet and saxophone sections to Légère Reeds in 2016. That switch helped us produce an undefeated 2016 ISSMA Class D State Champion marching band. Springs Valley loves Légère Reeds!” – L.

“Due to the poor quality of commercial reeds, I have been making my reeds since 1990. That had given me the highest quality control and level of performance for the chamber, solo and orchestral playing that I do. However, since trying the European Cut Légère reeds, my life has totally changed! I am using no cane reeds and have retired my reed machine. It is a miracle to have so many of these reeds literally be the best ones I have ever played! My practicing and performing have a whole new feeling of ease and freedom!

“I have found that Légère Reeds are not only the best synthetic reeds I have had the opportunity to play, but some of the best reeds, period.” – C. MacKenzie
