"I have played with Légère reeds since summer 2016. With some modifications they have worked well enough in everyday use, playing first and second oboes. The new medium-soft models are very close to perfect oboe reeds and they sound and react very well directly out-of-box. The only thing I have to do, is to shorten them a little bit due to tuning of my instrument. Finally, we oboist are equal with other instrumentalist and do not have to spend half of our live for reedmaking. Very much appreciated." - Jussi Jaatinen
