“I recently had my solo performance in Seoul, Korea on October 15, 2016. It was packed with more than 300 people in the concert room. Although, I could feel the air was really dry, I could play my saxophone with ease thanks to Légère. August this year, at another performance, I had a solo performance for an hour with played only jazz music. Thanks to Légère, the sound was perfect even though my saxophone was exposed to the elements of the outdoors. Moreover, Légère enables me to play for both classic and jazz music and both indoors and outdoors venue!  I trust Légère to give me the best sound possible! I don’t have to worry about my instrument as long as it’s a Légère!” – Dr. Yeomin Yun
