I wonder if what causes Legere reeds to fall just short of the very
best cane reeds is that the material is so consistent in density.
Maybe the minor variations in density from point to point within
a cane reed are important for getting the harmonics that you want.
Along these lines, I wonder what a mouthpiece with an asymmetrical
facing would do for a Legere reed.
