 Re: Do Légère reeds play flat?

For me they don't play flat over the entire range as I found they played flatter in the throat notes which was easily dealt with by using a slightly shorter barrel (or shorter mouthpiece).

The prototype oboe reeds were definitely saggy from high A upwards which was probably down to the inside shape which was more O than 0 in the area where the top of the staple and binding is on a cane reed, although they dealt with that by the time they hit the shelves and tuning up top hasn't been a problem. I still have the original reed from back then and it's still perfectly playable, even if it's a much harder strength than I prefer using as they only offered them in medium hard back then.

I've never had any problem with their bass clarinet or sax reeds being flat. More and more people I know are converting to Legeres - even oboists.

The opinions I express are my own.
