Unfortunately for most of us, Legere says (and WW&BW confirm) that quarter
strength reeds are not available in the US. Canadian and international
sales only. I think this is a new policy starting when he went to
distribution through dealers. But there it is.

For me, the 3.5 is "buzzy" indicating a somewhat too soft reed, by
comparison with my usual V12 3.5. I would like to be able to buy the 3.75.

play a Vandoren 3 1/2, buy Legere 3 3/34.
