 Re: Legere makes me think.... hmmmmm

Just needed to add my own update to this thread.



Fate has determined that I need to play bass clarinet again. I have gone right to the Legere line because it will be a doubling situation.


I went through four different strengths of the Legere Signature bass clarinet reeds and the same four strengths of the Legere Signature tenor sax reeds.


One thing that I found for me was that there is a VERY narrow window of strengths that work for me. Going up a quarter or down a quarter from the "right one," came off more as though there was a massive leak somewhere toward the top of the horn. But going back to the right strength brought the whole horn into focus!


For me the Legere Signature tenor sax reeds (strength 2 1/2) worked best, though I got some fairly acceptable sounds out of the 2 3/4 Legere Signature bass clarinet reed.


I have decided based on "Tucker's" review to try a few of the Studio cut next week.
