Légère Saxophone reeds are available for virtually all saxophones and have a beautiful tone and range, together with all the normal advantages of a synthetic reed.  One of the best features of a Légère reed is that it does not need to be moistened prior to playing. It will warm up over the first few minutes, and should then be stable for an extended period. Légère reeds are graded with great accuracy and sold in ¼ strengths. Each reed has a serial number and a strength which will correspond closely to a typical cane reed strength scale. The best thing about this material is it's sound. Professional players often use the word “woody” to describe it and this is the highest compliment! We know that you won’t believe it until you play the reed yourself...so give it a try!

The original cuts are designed for a darker sound and generally used for a classical set-up. New players should choose the Studio Cut.


Things You Will Get:

  • Sax Reed

I would buy it again


So, it's larger than the wood reeds and that takes some practice getting used to. I'm sure it's easier for a seasoned player, but for a beginner it may not be, as in our case. However, that's probably the only "negative" thing I can say about it. It's durable, there's no wait to play and it can be cleaned. I'm hoping our sax player gets the hang of it, I can see it costing WAY less than having to replace reeds so many times!
