 Legere makes me think.... hmmmmm

After getting fed up with re-working cane bass clarinet reeds, I started using Legere bass reeds exclusively. The Classics were basically useless to me. The Signatures were a HUGE improvement but still lacked in a couple of areas.

I contacted Legere a couple of times asking if they had plans for making a European cut bass clarinet reed, at which time I was told no. Disappointing news. I read a comment on this bulletin board about Fibracell reeds for bass. I tried them and like them MUCH better than Legeres.

I recently got an update from Legere (standard email correspondence). They reported that the contrabassoon, english horn, and European cut reed for Eb clarinet is in the finishing stages of beta testing. I thought really? HMMMMM..... To me it seems like there would be a larger market for bass clarinet (all cuts) reeds than Eb reeds and certainly larger than contrabassoon and english horns reeds.

Oh well... I'm happy with the Fibracell for bass.
