Comments about Legere Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

I reviewed the Fibracell reed months earlier & still use & like them but feel the Legere Signature reed is a little better. I play alto (~30 yrs) using a range of ESM Classic & Jazz mouthpieces; 4*, 5 & 6 Classic, & 6 Jazz, on a Buffet 400 Alto. I found the Legere to be stiffer than Fibracell of the same strength by about 3/4 given my 2.25 Legere feels the same in resistance as my #3 Fibracell when used on my #6 Classic with .071 tip opening. The reason I feel the Legere Signature is a little better than Fibracell is that I had more instances of errant mid range note instability with the Fibracell, some of which was due to embrochure fatigue, however, the Fibracell was more sensitive & unforgiving as a result as if to announce this. What really impressed me with the Legere Sig, is where my 2.5 Fibracell was a little too soft & uncooperative with high E & F & had a tendency to close up, my relatively softer #2 Legere Signature reed played through where I was sure it would close up. The Fibracell is still a great reed for the price & play friendly as long as it is matched well for the tip opening. The Legere however, is more forgiving & flexible with range of play across the horn even when it's on the soft side for the tip opening. I purchased two Legere reeds & although the 2.25 felt = to the Fibracell 3, the #2 Legere felt as if it was a little softer than my #2.5 Fibracell so there's some inconsistency with strength likely across both brands. I recommend first time Legere Signature Series users aim for a strength at least .5 softer than the cane reed in use. I'm curious about the longevity now. When the Fibracell reed is about worn out it will fray & fail to vibrate properly at times. I play about 7 hrs a week.

    Durable and sounds great. I transfer between multiple instruments in a performance and can just pick up sax after 1 hour and start playing. No worry about dried out reed.

      Outstanding product. Purchased three reeds and all three have equal response and tone quality. Keeping my fingers crossed that Legere will one day make a 3.75. Again, outstanding product.

      Comments about Legere Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

      I play Tenor in a big Band. For me this style has always caused problems with bamboo reeds, i.e. crack one in the middle of a performance. The back-up reed is never as good as the one that just cracked.
      Don't have this problem with Légere signature series.

        This is the first plastic reed that sounds almost as good as my best cane reeds. I would use it in a concert as well as practice. 2.5 worked best with my Selmer S80 and C* mouthpieces.

        Comments about Legere Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

        I have been using these for 2 years and will not go back to cane. I am not a pro, but play in a good community band. This reed gives me excellent control throughout the range of the instrument. The cost is reasonable as they last so long it's actually cheaper than a box of reeds.

          I like these reeds. Took some trial to discover the best strength to use with my mouthpiece (Otto Link). The combination is a little tricky to get best mouthpiece placement, but it worth the effort.
