>Thanks for the affirmation, Claudia. Now that I'm earning a paycheck
again, I think it's time I invested some $$ in a Legere, just to ensure
that a practice session is never curtailed for lack of a playable reed.
Next question: I seem to remember advice to the effect that one should
order their Legere reed one-half strength harder than the Vandoren
strength they usually play. Is this accurate?



Yes, I am a recent convert to Legere (in Colorado the lack of moisture
makes them particularly excellent!), and I am goin 0.5 - 1 grade higher.
They do soften a bit in the first couple of hours playing then stabilise.=

OK, =

that's a sample of three (two soprano and one bass) which is hardly
statistical, but they ARE supposed to be consistent!

Stick it in your mouth and play ... amazing!
