"My reaction was “WOW’ !!!!!!!!. Not only did I find the “WOW” but I found a reed that works every time. This reed is Légère Signature Series. I have played many cane reeds and many synthetic reeds but nothing like The Légère Signature Series. It feels smooth , clean, and is very stable. The intonation is great and it lasts. I have definitely found my reed of choice and the reed of the present and future in Légère. I highly recommend Légère to anyone who wants the “WOW”! Definitely too all reed players around the world and especially to all my Canadian reed players. As a High School Music director I have introduced Légère Reeds to all my students and to the school Board. They are all excited !!! It is truly an honor and a pleasure to be a part of The Légère Reeds Family!" - Enrico
