This product really performs well. It sounds JUST LIKE A CANE REED. Totally awesome. Couldn't ask for more from a synthetic reed. Guaranteed consistency and a great sound. Easy to play. I love it.
I have played on cane reeds for many years, and I will say that I can count the number of cane reeds that sounded better than legeres on my left hand. Legeres are hands down better than any cane reed.
The regular cut in any strength didn't work for me -- they simply were far to bright sounding in the clarion register.
After reading a recommendation from someone who uses a similar mouthpiece to me (Grabner K11*) I gave the Quebec version a try. After a week or so of practice, I sound just as good or better on these as I have on anything else. If the sound is getting too bright, try relaxing the jaw and lowering the tongue a bit. Another slight adjustment that improved the tone even further was pushing the tip of the reed just a little past the end of the mouthpiece. This gives a nicer taper to the sound between dynamics.
You might have a hard time playing really high with these - like altissimo Bb and up - but maybe a harder strength would help with that.
Ever since I learned clarinet, I had played on a cane reed. As my playing progressed and I understood more about playing, I realized they tended to be very inconsistent - thus the joke about how many clarinet players are needed to change a light bulb: "one, but they have to go through an entire box to find the right one". I bought this reed out of curiosity, and it is definitely an improvement. It seems to be potentially more durable, and my tone and control of volume has improved.
You know the joke...How many clarinetists does it take to change a lightbulb? Only one, but he has to go through a whole box of bulbs to find just the "right" one! Well, the search for reeds is the source for that joke. I have tried a number of different reeds and ended up playing the Legere Quebec cut 3.5 on my current setup, which includes a hand-faced mouthpiece from Ted Lane. The Legere Quebec suits my playing far better than the standard cut and has a nice, warm tone to it. I get numerous compliments on my sound from fellow section members, and I can count on the Legere Quebecs to be both consistent and durable. While there may be a *few* cane reeds that offer better results, the search and aggravation are not worth the time. Try a Legere Quebec and see if you don't agree!
