David Hernando Vitores
Performing/Recording Artist and Composer
“Since I use Légère Signature Series I have found a homogeneous sound without change depending on the room or auditorium. It is easy to issue, balanced in all registers; serious, medium, high and altissimo. The sound is clear and clean. This is very important because for classical music, the saxophonist has to play with the best possible comfort without concern for the reed. It's perfect for contemporary music to play many effects. When I play the saxophone, I am very calm because I know that the reed will be in optimum condition during my concerts. The Légère Signature reeds are an important way forward! They are great!” - David Hernando
