 Re: Plastic vs Cane faceoff

You'll always give up something in the feel of the reed and the sound you hear will always be a little different between cane and plastic no matter what synthetic you use. I think the Légère Signature bass reeds are very useable when I don't want to use cane, usually to avoid a dry reed after the bass sits on its stand for a long while in a doubling part.

I haven't tried a synthetic on an Eb clarinet. I play it rarely enough that it's easier to stay with cane than go through the trial ritual it would take to find a synthetic I like. If you play a lot of Eb, of course, your need may differ considerably.
