“Légère reeds are extremely responsive, consistent, and reliable. I have had nothing but great feedback about them from my colleagues and audience members alike. In fact, Légère reeds have completely changed my outlook on clarinet playing. Instead of worrying about the reed before a concert I get to focus on what’s really important, the music. I would highly recommend them to any player at any level. Thank you Légère!” - Micah
