 Which Legere Reed on BD5?
Author: jeffyx

Does anyone know which Legere reed to get for the BD5? I'm confused whether to get the European or Signature. I understand the European is more popular but according to the website, it's works better on french mouthpieces. Has anyone tried Legere reeds on a BD5? If so, which model should I get?

The BD5 is a French mouthpiece.

Get the European Signature version. Go a quarter or half strength UP from what you would use for cane (Vandoren 4 would equal Legere Europeans Signature 4.5. 3.5/3.5+ would be about a 3.75/4).
