 Re: Legere reeds

I use a legere Euro Signature anytime I want to cut all the delicious overtones out of my sound. I’ve played them on “legere” friendly mouthpieces I’ve played them on mouthpieces not marketed to the synthetic gang. I can put a legere reed on and not only can I hear the lack of that magic 12th in the fundamental but it so obvious even an inexpensive spectral analyzer will show it.

I know some really fine players using them and I can hear the differences in their sounds. There is a certain sound that is popular on clarinet these days. I think the sound that a Korg tuner makes, encapsulates that “ideal” The Legere really takes you there quickly. It’s NOT the sounds I’m looking for.

I also have to say I don’t think many double lip players like them because you need to to use too much embouchure to play them “up to pitch”. My choice is to work on reeds so I don’t have to work so hard when I’m playing.
