 Re: Legere reeds
Author: Paul Aviles

Ok, let me just provide my latest examples.


I determined a good reed strength for a particular mouthpiece (and how I play), and then purchased four new reeds of that strength to use in rotation. I can go through all four with really no adjustment necessary and get the same predictable performance.



As I have want to do, I then ordered a custom mouthpiece from Ben Redwine which came in just slightly more open than I thought. The current Legere I was using where usable but just a bit airy and had some control issues with articulation. The solution? I went down one quarter strength and all the negative issues cleared up! I then bought four more reeds one quarter strength softer and they in turn where consistent performers on the new Gennusa mouthpiece.



So that made eight reeds in a row that performed consistently within their parameters of strength as advertised.



Am I the ONLY one experiencing this wonderful performance from the Legere European Signature reeds?!!!?



Again, I swear to y'all that I am pretty picky about small details (as attested to my drawers filled with pretty much every ligature known to man).


I did NOT feel very positive about the original Legere Bb clarinet reed (still produced and called the "Classic"). The Quebec cut came the closest to working, but when Legere discontinued the production of that reed I complained mightily to everybody who would listen (and still do to some degree).
