Saxophonist, Recording Artist and Educator

“I love Légère reeds for two main reasons; Number One – They don’t dry out Number Two - They are consistent every time I pick up my horn.

I have played a lot of outdoor gigs and festivals over the past 23 years in Colorado.  Until I discovered Légère reeds I had to keep a cup of water on stage to soak my reeds….sometimes it would get so dry I would have to switch them out every song…..not anymore.” - Bob
