Interesting William!

My joy in playing and encouraging Legere synthetic reeds is their ease in use, that require no additional adjusting.

Cane reeds, for my many years, have required adjusting with various tools, knives, sand paper, reed clippers, etc. Legere reeds don't need any of these adjustments...they just play great right out of the case! And if you don't like the one you've purchased, just send it back for another one or a refund, simple.

I believe this new synthetic reed is the reed of the future!
Some obvious reasons...

1) It plays great and in tune right out of the package.
2) Requires no work to "make it better".
3) Is returnable if not satisfied.
4) Lasts much longer than a good cane reed.
5) Is not affected by heat, cold, humidity, smoke, or adverse conditions.

If you're intent on working on your reeds, perhaps stick with your best cane reeds or even a Forestone, they do sound good with considerable effort. I do not recommend working on Legere reeds, they don't need or require it.

Legere reeds stand alone as the finest synthetic reeds that are now available, IMHO.
