Quick post - I just spent an hour trying out the new Legende from Buffet!

I think you all know me as a straight shooter, and always give my exact opinion. Most of you also know i am a Buffet dealer, and therefore might have a slight bias.

Having said that, I think that this particular instrument is simply fabulous. It has plenty of power, but you can play it with extreme delicacy. It has the smoothest transition between registers that I have ever encountered. The tone quality of the throat tones excellent. The instrument blows quite freely, with no feeling of too much resistance, yet has a dark, almost velvety tone quality; attractive but not bright.

The response is wonderful, making all the "fast-tongue" excerpts much easier.

It also does an amazing job on Rhapsody in Blue.

I'll have more to say as I spend more time with this horn, but initial appearances are that Buffet (as they did with the Tosca bass clarinet) has really hit one out of the park!
