 Legere reeds
Author: Bob Bernardo 
Date:   2019-11-09 14:18

I know these reeds are decent. But they are made wrong. Yet players put up with this.

I read a post not long ago saying some mouthpiece companies make a few mouthpieces which are Legere friendly. Sorry but I had to laugh. This is so untrue. Am I going nuts? This can't be right. A few players send me their Legere reeds to fix. I fix them the very same way as I do with cane reeds. So this means to me Legere doesn't have what it takes to simply design a reed to fit all mouthpieces. Yes it's fine to have different models. I get that, but these models should all play. Why do I need to adjust these reeds for players? It's not my job! Come on Legere! Make them right. I must say when the reeds are balanced they play on all mouthpieces. So people don't go buy the Legere friendly mouthpiece. It's not out there, but the Legere reeds surely can be adjusted. Why should we have to? Make them right. They've been in business too long and its time to do this right.

Yes I know there are players who don't do anything to the reeds. But you should. They aren't cut right.
