“I am so impressed with Légère Signature reeds. It is such a luxury to play a reed that feels comfortable straight away and it is a great experience playing them on my Tenor, Alto and Soprano saxophones. They are so responsive, maintain my natural tone and play straight out of the box. A dream for a touring and recording saxophonist as you can be absolutely confident in your sound and consistency of the reed at any time. 

The Légère Signature reeds have given me one less thing to think about at set up… soaking, scraping and prepping are a thing of the past!” – Yolanda
