 Re: Legere reeds

There is a little confusion in this thread. The width of the Legere Bb European Signature reed is precisely the same as the width of the Legere Signature Soprano Saxophone reed. So I don't see how one could be unacceptably wide while the other is not.



Also, I assume that when the thickness is referred to above, the thickness is regarding the vibrating portion of the reed NOT the body of the reed that you secure to the mouthpiece with a ligature.


As for whether Legere works well for ALL mouthpiece dimensions is a matter that I personally cannot verify. I rely here on the playing of folks like Corrado Giuffredi. Everything about is sound and style says to me that he plays a more open system. Others that I know who use Legere successfully are like myself inclined toward shorter, smaller tip openings (or longer and smaller as in Germany). So there may be a tendency but it seems that others find them to work as well.
